Are two condoms better than one for protecting against STIs and preventing pregnancy?

When it comes to condoms, two is NOT better than one. Two condoms can create more friction, which increases the chances the condom(s) will break. If you want to be very safe, use a condom and another effective contraceptive method.
Try a different method: implant.
