World AIDS Day is a day to show support for people living with HIV and also to raise awareness about sexual health. Health authorities, NGO’s and other organizations around the globe have their campaigns and seminars highlighting the importance of sex education as well as clearing the myths associated with AIDS. There are people who still feel shy and uncomfortable to buy condoms which are not only used as one of the contraception, but also effective in providing protection against HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) that attacks the immune system of body and can lead to AIDS.
Why people feel embarrassed and uncomfortable for purchasing condoms has many factors. Some think what the chemist and people purchasing medicines at the medical shop will think about them, while some chemists’ give the kind of look which discourages people, especially youngsters to buy condoms. Currently, due to online portals people can order condoms and get it delivery to their place; however the main question still remains why you should feel shy or uncomfortable for buying something which is protecting you and also used as a method of contraception. Shed away your shyness and buy condoms from medical shop and of course you have an option of buying it online, but do you use condoms and have a safe sex.
