They do, when you use them properly, everytime. Remember that HIV can be spread otther ways -- You can learn more about HIV and HIV transmission here -- STI File: Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)

Nifty things they are, huh?

They sure do. In fact, they're the only thing known to, save abstaining from partnered sex and any sort of blood/fluid exchange.

And when you pair them with the other important safer sex practices -- limiting partners and regular STI screenings -- it's really excellent protection.
