STI prevention

Condoms are the only form of contraception, along with Femidoms, that can help prevent against Sexually Transmitted Infections.  They are also really effective against the most common infection, Chlamydia, as well as Gonorrhoea and HIV.

They also have the added benefit of providing a back up to hormonal methods of contraception if you want to avoid unintended pregnancy!  Condoms are easy to get and come in a range of sizes, colours and even flavours.

A few simple tips can make sure condoms offer the best protection against infection (and contraception), so just click on the condom or femidom to find out a bit more.
