The condom wrapper is one of those little pieces of packaging that can save lives.
In fact, a new study says there’s a connection between the size of the condom wrapper and its effectiveness.
A new study found that condoms that are smaller, which have a smaller opening and are more transparent can lower the risk of transmission.
Researchers from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and University of Minnesota conducted the study with more than 3,000 women and found that a condom that is a little smaller than 3 millimeters by 3 millimeter can lower transmission rates by 30 percent.
The condom is a kind of container that allows for a better way to protect women from getting pregnant.
If a woman is wearing the condom, her vagina can’t get very close to the surface of the penis, and that’s when it becomes more vulnerable to STDs.
The smaller condom is also the reason why it’s more effective, said study co-author Anuja Gupta, a reproductive health professor at UTSA.
“Because the condom is smaller, it allows for less friction.
And because there is less friction, the vagina does not get very far away from the penis,” Gupta said.
A condom that’s too small can actually lead to a condom being too small, which can lead to the infection of the cervix, which is the opening that connects the vagina to the uterus and is a critical barrier to pregnancy.
“You’re more likely to get the infection because of the larger opening,” Gupta explained.
The study was published online in the journal PLOS ONE.
The researchers wanted to determine whether the condom packaging had an effect on transmission of the STDs that occur during pregnancy.
A small condom can increase the chance of a woman contracting an infection.
The larger the condom the greater the risk, the researchers found.
In other words, a condom smaller than a quarter of an inch by a quarter inch will decrease the likelihood of a transmission.
The small condom is one type of condom that has a smaller open, but the smaller the opening, the less likely it is for a woman to be exposed to a sexually transmitted infection.
Gupta and her team also found that when the condom was larger than a dime by a dime, there was an increased risk of infection, but not enough to prevent transmission.
If the condom’s opening was smaller than the size required for a man to insert his penis, there is no increase in risk.
The authors also did not find any association between condom size and transmission during a sexual encounter.
The new study suggests that condoms may not be the only way to reduce transmission.
“Our research has shown that condoms are effective when they’re small,” Gupta told NBC News.
“In fact, condoms that have a larger opening have a better chance of decreasing transmission rates than condoms that’re smaller.”
