Condoms are another way to practice safer sex. Not only can they protect against HIV, they can also help prevent pregnancy and other sexually transmitted infections.
External condoms are worn over the penis and sex toys to help protect against HIV and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). They are easy to use and may be available for free at local clinics and community-based organizations, and are sold at many drugstores and online.
Internal condoms are worn inside vagina/front hole or anus and are another way to help prevent HIV infection and STIs. Although not as commonly used as external condoms, they may be offered for free by local clinics and community-based organizations, and are sold in some drugstores and online.
