Male and female condoms. View of a male condom (at top) and a female condom (Femidom). Both rubber devices are used for contraception, and they are fitted before sexual intercourse. The male condom is a sheath which is unrolled over the erect penis. The female condom is inserted into the vagina. Either method prevents sperm from entering the womb to cause pregnancy. These condoms, used separately, offer effective contraception. Condoms also act as a prophylactic against sexually- transmitted diseases, including HIV, the virus causing AIDS. The use of condoms constitutes one of the practices of "safe sex" to prevent AIDS.
