Here’s more info:

EXTERNAL CONDOMS: An external condom, sometimes called a “male condom,” is rolled down over a strap on dildo or a dick as a barrier to prevent STDs and pregnancy. External condoms come in many shapes and sizes, so be sure to try out different kinds to see which ones feel best to you. External condoms are great for oral sex, penetrative sex of all kinds and for putting over sex toys. Be sure to change condoms in between partners and when switching between a front hole or vagina and an anus. Avoid lambskin condoms because they do not prevent the spread of HIV or STDs.

INTERNAL CONDOMS: Internal condoms, sometimes called “female condoms” (or FC2), are polyurethane condoms that can be placed inside of a front hole, vagina or anus before sex. Internal condoms help prevent pregnancy and the spread of HIV and STDs by collecting semen and preventing bodily fluids from getting inside of the front hole, vagina or anus. Internal condoms are ideal for penetrative sex, especially anal sex.

with PEP
talk to your
healthcare provider
More info:

PEP, or Post-Exposure Prophylaxis, is an HIV prevention strategy that currently involves taking HIV medications immediately after a single high-risk event, such as condomless sex with a person whose HIV status you do not know. These medications stop HIV from spreading throughout your body. PEP involves taking medication for 28 consecutive days, and it’s best to start PEP as soon as possible after a potential exposure to HIV, since it only works if you start it within 72 hours of the exposure. PEP does not provide protection against any other STIs, however. If you ever need to take PEP, you might also want to consider talking to your provider about PrEP. If you have questions about PEP or PrEP, or need help accessing it, call the PrEP Navigator at 760-656-8486.
