Even though a condom does not completely prevent HPV transmission, its use is recommended even for the partial protection it offers. Of particular interest are recent studies that have shown that the use of a condom not only decreases the risk of primary infection by HPV but it also decreases the rates of recurrences of the lesions after treatment (apparently due to a decrease of the sexually transmitted viral load).
