Abstract

The effect of interpersonal communication on condom use among adolescents with casual or recent steady sexual relationships

The effect of interpersonal communication on condom use among adolescents with casual or recent steady sexual relationships

In the context of a health campaign on condom use in new relationships, this study examined the effects of interpersonal communication about condom use, std-tests, and health campaigns on the use of condoms in beginning relationships of young people, 18-25 years old. In a two-wave prospective study, 544 persons answered a pre-campaign questionnaire as well as, three months later, a post-campaign questionnaire. Interpersonal communication regarding safe sexual behaviour influences both intention to use condoms as well as the use of condoms. Interpersonal communication seems essential to establish changes in sexual behavior.
