According to the CDC (Center of Disease Control and Prevention), Illinois is ranked 8th in the US for the rate of cases of gonorrhea in 2008, and 9th in rate of chlamydia cases.

The spread of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can be prevented!! Use a condom!!

When you use condoms consistenly and correctly, they significantly reduce the risk of STIs, and condoms are 97% effective in preventing unintended pregnancies.

Condoms are the only form of birth control that also prevent the spread of disease.

For more info, read the PPIL National Condom Week Press Release.
