Condoms give you protection from pregnancy AND STDs in a convenient little package. Just roll one onto your penis before sex to prevent contact with skin and fluids that can spread STDs or cause pregnancy.

Condoms are one­-time­-use only — so use a new one every time you have sex.

Condoms work great with other birth control methods, like the pill or IUD, for extra pregnancy-­preventing power. And unlike other types of birth control, condoms also help protect you from STDs.

You can get condoms at most convenience stores, drug stores, community health clinics, and Planned Parenthood health centers. They’re inexpensive — and sometimes even free.
