Condom use by women on the rise

22nd October 2009

Figures from the Office for National Statistics show that 25% of women under 50 now use male condoms for contraception.

More than twice as many 40-44-year-old women rely on male condoms as those using the pill, while older women are more likely to rely on their sterilisation, or their partner’s sterilisation, for contraception. Of men and women who used condoms, 90% said that contraception was one of their reasons for choosing them and 45% mentioned prevention of sexually transmitted infections.
