ABSTRACT
Though many methods of prevention of STI/HIV are available, condoms remain of utmost importance. They have gone a long way from the oiled silk paper used by the Chinese and the hard sheaths made of tortoise- shell used by the Japanese to the latex condoms of today. The breakthrough came when the rubber vulcanization process was invented by Charles Goodyear and eventually the first rubber condom was made. The condom offers maximum protection( more than 90%) against HIV, Hepatitis B virus and N.Gonorrhoea. They also offer protection in scenarios when alternate sexual practices are adapted. The female condom in the only female driven contraceptive method available today. Graphene and Nano lubricated condoms are new in the market and others in futuristic approach may include wearable technology/Technology driven condom and invisible Condoms. Both Correct and Consistent use of condoms needs to be promoted for HIV/STI prevention.

Mentions: Condoms or sheaths are the oldest forms of barrier contraception used by the male.[1] It has been suggested that the Ancient Egyptians were among the first to wear them [Figure 1]. The earliest description of the condom was by the great Italian anatomist Gabriello Fallopio [Figure 2] in 1564, published 2 years after his death. He claimed to have invented a linen sheath made to fit the glans and it was worn for protection against syphilis.
