CONDOMS

External condoms are what most people think of when someone says “condoms.”

They are typically made of latex (though latex-free options are also available!) and are worn on the penis or on a sex toy. If used correctly and consistently, condoms are 97% effective in preventing pregnancy, and highly effective at preventing the spread of sexually transmitted infections (including chlamydia, gonorrhea, HPV, HIV, herpes, and syphilis).

 

Here’s some tips to keep in mind when using external condoms:

  • Keep them out of the heat and direct sunlight

  • Use a new condom each time you have sex

  • Always check the expiration date on the wrapper

  • Open the wrapper carefully to make sure you don’t tear the condom

  • Only use ONE condom at a time (don’t try to double up, as this increases the likelihood the condoms may break)

  • Use water-based or silicone-based lube (but not oil-based lube) with latex condoms

INTERNAL (FEMALE) CONDOMS

LUBRICANT

Many might be less familiar with internal condoms (also know as female condoms), but internal condoms can also be used as an effective barrier method to preventing pregnancy and protecting against the spread of sexually transmitted infections. An internal condom works just like other condoms, except that it is worn on the inside. These condoms can be used for either vaginal or anal sex. 

Some things to know when using internal condoms: 

  • Internal condoms are inserted into the vagina or the anus prior to having sex

  • Use a new internal condom each time you have sex

  • Always check the expiration date prior to using an internal condom

  • Open the wrapper carefully to ensure you do not damage the condom

  • When using internal condoms for either vaginal or anal sex, do not remove the inner ring, as this could lead to condom damage. Once the internal condom is successfully placed, the outer ring will sit at the opening of the vagina or the anus

  • Do NOT use an internal condom with an external condom, as this can cause tearing 

  • Use lubricant to decrease friction and help prevent the condom from slipping or tearing

Lubricant, often called lube for short, is used to enhance sexual pleasure and safety. Lube helps keep body parts slippery, which for a lot of people makes sex feel better. Lube also decreases the chances that a condom will break or that sensitive genital skin will tear, thereby helping to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections. Lube is especially important during anal sex because this area, unlike the vagina, doesn’t lubricate itself at all during sex.

 

Many condoms are pre-lubricated, but using extra lube helps keep thing slippery, fun,

and safe. Water-based and silicone-based lubricants can be used with any type of condom, but oil-based lubricants can only be used with non-latex condoms.

PREGNANCY TESTS

At-home pregnancy tests are an easy and convenient way to test for pregnancy. These tests work by detecting the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) in urine, which the body produces when a woman is pregnant. When used properly, home pregnancy tests are 97-99% effective. For the most accurate results, try to test in the morning when you first go to the bathroom.

 

These tests, however, are not foolproof. If you get a positive result, be sure to go to your doctor to confirm. False negatives are also possible, especially if you test too early (like before a missed period). If you get a negative result, try testing again in a few days. If you still have signs of pregnancy, it's best to see your doc.
 

UTI TESTS

A urinary tract infection, or UTI, is an infection of your urinary system. Usually UTIs affect the lower urinary tract—the bladder (where urine is stored) and the urethra (where urine exits the body), but in severe cases a UTI can work its way up to your kidneys. Symptoms of a UTI include pain or burning when urinating, a strong and persistent urge to urinate, cloudy or discolored urine, and pelvic or back pain. 

Most UTIs are caused by bacteria. At-home UTI tests work by detecting levels of leukocytes and nitrites in your urine, a sign that those bad bacteria are present.

If you test positive, go see your doctor or a healthcare provider ASAP to get antibiotics. If left untreated, a UTI can have serious complications.

Anyone cane get a urinary tract infection, regardless of gender or sexuality. A UTI is NOT sexually transmitted, and in fact it can't be spread from person to person.

Here are some easy steps you can take to help prevent them: 

  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day

  • Don't hold it if you have to go to the bathroom

  • Wipe from front to back to avoid spreading bacteria

  • Avoid irritating or scented feminine products or douches

  • Always pee after having sexual intercourse!


 

DENTAL DAMS

A dental dam is a thin, flexible piece of latex that protects against direct mouth-to-genital or mouth-to-anal contact during oral sex. Dental dams can prevent certain STIs from being transmitted during oral sex, including syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, hepatitis, and HIV.

 

Here’s some tips to keep in mind when using dental dams:

  • Always check the expiration date on the wrapper

  • Open the wrapper carefully to make sure you don’t tear the dental dam

  • Don’t stretch the dental dam or press it tightly against the skin - this can cause it to tear. The dental dam should stick to the body because of moisture and static

  • If the dental dam gets folded or crumpled, throw it out and replace it with a new one

  • Use water-based or silicone-based lube (but not oil-based lube) with dental dams
