Abstract

The main purpose of this study was to investigate the attitudes of teenagers towards condom use. The study was conducted at Botlokwa village, Capricorn district of Limpopo Province. The study was conceptualized on the Health belief model (HBM). A quantitative, cross sectional approach was adopted using a descriptive design. A non-probability purposive sampling was used to handpick 80 respondents which included youths between the ages 14 to 19 years and data collection was done using a self-administered questionnaire. The major inferences drawn from this study included non-availability of condoms which led youths not to use condoms during sexual intercourse. A positive attitude towards condom use was observed among the youth respondents. The feedback from the youths is an indication that inadequate knowledge on the effectiveness of female condoms led to non-use of condoms. Non-availability of condoms and coerced sex also contribute to non-use of condoms.
