Happy Valentine's Day!

Valentine’s Day is upon us yet again, and it brings up images of hearts, roses, chocolates, dinner, romance, kisses and, well, sex.

But don’t wait until the heat of the moment to bring up condoms.

Talk about condom use before you are in a situation where you might need one.

We recommend talking with your partner about the importance of using condoms to protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Condoms are the only form of contraception that also helps reduce the risk of STIs.

Did you know that many people who have a sexually transmitted infection don’t even realize it? Take a second to let that sink in.

That's why it's so important to let your partner know that you want to use condoms every time you have sex, keeping both of you healthy and protected. Being safe and protecting each others' health is a smart choice.

Every year PPIL provides more than 75,000 women, men, and teens across Illinois with health information, services and education to prevent STIs and unintended pregnancy.

If you are having trouble choosing a condom then check out Proper Attire condoms, a PP line of chic stylish condoms (above) that are leaps and bounds more fashion-forward then other brands and you won't have a problem carrying them around with you.

Do you love us?

Because we love protecting you! Show us your love by reviewing us on Search for "Planned Parenthood" near your zip code.

Now go out and have a safe and wonderful Valentine's Day.
