Summary: Two Planned Parenthood Condoms rated as Poor Strength and/or Reliability

Two condoms, distributed at Planned Parenthood clinics, generally free of charge or at low cost, were tested and were found to have greater tendency to fail during use.

  • Consumer Reports reported that of all pregnancy prevention options, only condoms may protect against sexually transmitted diseases including HIV which causes AIDS.  They stated that is a crucial function since HIV infects 110 Americans every day, half of them under 25 years old.  Consumer Reports tested 23 brand name condoms for strength and reliability. Two condoms by Planned Parenthood, the Assorted Color and Honeydew models, were not recommended because they were found to be poor in strength and reliability.1
