What if my partner is allergic to latex?

Latex allergies are rare, but they happen. If you or your partner is allergic to latex, look for latex-free condoms to protect against pregnancy and STIs. Lambskin external condoms (male) are another option for preventing pregnancy, but they do not protect against STIs.
Try a different method: internal condom (female).
