    The Danish word for condom is svangerskabsforebyggendemiddel? That brings up a whole new level of awkwardness while doing into a drugstore to buy some :D

      No, the danish word for condom is kondom!
      svangerskabsforebyggende middel is 2 words and translated to english would be something like: “pregnancy preventing mean”, and can be any thing that’s pregnancy preventing, not just condoms.
      The word svangerskabsforebyggende is old danish and is not used by common people, but by health care personnel.

        The Great Dane,

        I understand your clarification, and though the word (contraceptive) is mentioned, I would rephrase the sentence correctly..

        Thank you for the information.

    The piece of information on this post that states that polyurethane condoms do not protect against HIV is false information. Polyurethane offers the same protection against HIV as latex condoms. I work in HIV/AIDS awareness and education. It’s very important that viewers recieve accurate information on this topic.

      Kirsty,

      I understand your concern, but since synthetic non-latex condoms are a recent invention (1995), as compared to latex condoms (about 150 years ago); the data available for their breakage and efficiency to barrier HIV is not well studied and documented.

      As a result of the incomplete picture, the FDA requires manufacturers to label their non-latex condoms with warnings like this one:

      The risks of pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s), including AIDS (HIV infection), are not known for this condom. A study is being done. There are laboratory tests on this non-latex material. These tests show that organisms even as small as sperm and viruses like HIV cannot pass through it.

      Source, Source

      Since I haven’t come across any new data-research stating the barrier protection of Polyurethane condoms, to be equal to Latex condoms, I felt it was inappropriate to put them on the same stand. And since, the primarily use of Polyurethane condoms is for a minute population (3% who are latex-allergic), I didn’t include it in this general fact-based infographic.

      Though, I agree, I shouldn’t have put Lamb-Skin condoms and Polyurethane condoms in the same category. I would list them in an increasing order of barrier protection, for more clarity.

      Thank you for the information, though.
