Latex condoms, when used consistently and correctly, are highly effective in
preventing transmission of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. In addition, correct
and consistent use of latex condoms can reduce the risk of other sexually
transmitted diseases (STDs), including discharge and genital ulcer diseases.
While the effect of condoms in preventing human papilloma virus (HPV) infection
is unknown, condom use has been associated with a lower rate of cervical
cancer, an HPV-associated disease. Laboratory studies have demonstrated that latex condoms provide an essentially impermeable barrier to particles the size of STD pathogens.

No, you can find the natural/lamb skin condoms for sale. Trojan makes a natural condom. They only stop pregnancy and are only used for such. The feel is better so some people who use condoms in a committed relationship and do not want to get pregnant use these.

Doctors and health advisors, are protection from STD/HIV more effective by using latex condom along with non-oil based lube? Or you can say using the latex condom itself is just fine for protection against STD/HIV?
