Condoms can help prevent pregnancy and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. However, according to a new federal report, only about a third of Americans use them. The author of the report called the newfound use of condoms a "public health issue." About 20 million new cases of STDs are diagnosed each year in the United States. These infections include human papilloma virus, or HPV, gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, hepatitis and HIV. The author said people who are dating casually use more condoms than people who say they are co-habitating or engaged.
