Drop in student condom use raises alarm at U


Condom use has dropped sharply since 2010 among a large share of students at the University of Minnesota, and sexually transmitted infections such as chlamydia and gonorrhea are on the rise.

In a new survey, 52 percent of students said they used a condom the last time they had vaginal intercourse, down from 60 percent in a survey five years ago. The share who said they used a condom for oral sex or anal sex has risen slightly, but remains far too low, U health officials said.
