Why University students In Kenya No Longer Use Condoms

The majority of University students no longer wrap it up when having sex. This is major because many girls at the university are not worried about getting infected by STIs but rather are afraid of getting pregnant. This is where P2 comes in. Most girls are introduced to the pill by their boyfriends. Using condoms is perceived as one not trusting their partner and others believe condoms are not effective in preventing pregnancies. So people have unprotected sex when in a relationship due to the false trust they develop because they are in love.

Considering that the emergency contraceptive pill is sold over the counter over the counter without a prescription, students prefer using it instead of condoms. It is also cheap. In Kenya, it is sold for 100 to 150 shillings thus affordable to students.

This Is why Kenya was ranked to be one of the countries which have a huge number of youths infected with HIV and AIDs.
