Psychiatry related information on Condoms


High impact information on Condoms

  • INTERVENTIONS: Nonoxynol-9 gel (100 mg) and condoms or condoms only [9].
  • Gas, dye, and viral transport through polyurethane condoms [10].
  • Cocaine, packaged in condoms, was deliberately ingested to avoid detection by customs agents [11].
  • Sexually active men and women who used condom at FHI were 11 and 2.5 times more likely to consistently use condoms during the month preceding the interview [12].
  • CONCLUSIONS: Men reported more frequent problems with Reality condoms than male latex condoms used for anal intercourse, particularly slippage, discomfort, and rectal bleeding [13].

Associations of Condoms with chemical compounds

  • After rupture of nonoxynol 9-containing condoms, an outside nonoxynol 9 concentration of 0.25% was reached [1].
  • Multiple logistic regression analysis indicated that condom use was independently associated with greater personal acceptance of condoms, greater partner receptivity to sexual protection, and recent entry to methadone treatment [27].
  • The gel formulation containing sodium lauryl sulfate was fully compatible with nonlubricated latex condoms [28].
  • Consistent condom users among the clients were found to be better educated, to have a less strong external Health Locus of Control, to evaluate condoms and visiting prostitutes more positively, and prostitutes less negatively, and to have more fear of AIDS than non-consistent condom using clients [29].
  • It was found that allergy to mercaptobenzthiazole (MBT)- and thiuram-containing condoms was relatively common and that latex/petroleum tube medical adhesives most commonly caused adhesive allergy [30].

Gene context of Condoms

  • Findings for H2 suggest that IPV at wave 2 decreased the subsequent likelihood of always using condoms at wave 3 (OR=.41, p<.01) and always requesting that a partner use condoms (OR=.42, p=.02) [31].
  • Findings for H1 indicate that women who reported always using condoms at wave 2 were significantly less likely than women who reported inconsistent or no condom use to experience subsequent IPV at wave 3 [31].
  • Data collected showed that condoms provided by GMFA, as well as from other sources, were being used in the PSE [32].
  • Premature removal of condoms by young men in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire: an example of an AIDS prevention dilemma [33].
  • Condoms filled with degassed water and five human bile specimens were positioned in the focus of an MPL 9000 lithotriptor (Dornier Medical Systems, Munich) [34].
