Condoms (male or female) are the only methods other than abstinence, which are proven to reduce the spread of STI's. If you have multiple partners and are not in a committed relationship this should be your first birth control option.

Condoms provide a physical barrier during sexual intercourse and when used properly are an effective method.

Condoms are available without a prescription and can be found just about anywhere. There are few side effects such as irritation or allergic reactions in rare instances.

The physical barrier decreases the feeling during sexual intercourse which is not acceptable to some couples. You should evaluate your risk factors prior to trying an alternate method but, if you've tried condoms in the past, are not satisfied with the feeling and are in a committed relationship then you might want to try VCF which can offer birth control with full feeling.
