dc.description.abstractWhen used consistently and correctly, condoms can prevent against the spread of sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s) and unplanned pregnancies. Condoms are a significant prevention method viable for all populations. This study was conducted using students at a Midwestern University who were enrolled in a personal health and wellness course and examined their reported use of condoms. This study involved voluntary participation of 275 personal health and wellness students. Results indicated that approximately 40% of the participants who reported being sexually active stated they did not use a condom during their last act of sex. The most common response for lack of condom use was “Trust in partners’ monogamy.” Females reported experiencing STD’s and unplanned pregnancies at a higher rate than the male population.
