Protection is available for everyone, including for those who have a latex allergy. Condoms are 99.9% effective against sexually transmitted infections (STI) and pregnancy. So many of them, however, are commonly made from latex. Latex allergies are fairly common and can happen at any stage of life. Even if the wearer does not have an allergy, their partner might – and it can lead to a visit to the hospital emergency! Make sure to check in with your partners about preferred protection methods, as well as any allergies. Latex Free Condoms, made from polyurethane, can provide the same protection without the potential of an allergic reaction.
