Condoms are birth control devices that prevent semen (the fluid that contains sperm) from entering a vagina or anus. When semen is released inside a vagina, it may reach an egg and fertilize it, causing pregnancy. Condoms also help prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV, if used properly. There are 2 types of condoms: internal (worn on the inside of the vagina or anus) and external (worn on the outside of an erect penis). This pamphlet explains what internal and external condoms are, how they work, how well they work to prevent pregnancy, what to do if a condom breaks during vaginal sex, and what to do if your partner does not want to use a condom. A link to the The Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada website is provided for further information.
