One major advantage of condoms is that it not only prevents pregnancy, but it also prevents the spread of sexually transmitted diseases and infections.
Condoms are cheap, and available without a prescription. Many people are able to use condoms. Condoms do not involve any side effects that are possible with hormonal birth control, such as headaches, weight gain, or mood swings.
Condoms are a way for men to actively take a role in birth control.

Some people claim that stopping sex to put on condoms is a disruption that spoils the mood. Other people, however, do not feel comfortable unless they are having sex with a condom. They prefer feeling confident about their contraception and safe sex, which gives them the freedom to become sexually excited without being worried.
Condoms can be used with other forms of birth control. They can also be used during foreplay.
