Do external and internal condoms provide the same protection against HIV?

Yes. Some studies show that internal condoms are as effective at protecting against HIV as external condoms.

Internal condoms are made of nitrile, which is an effective barrier to HIV. Internal and external condoms should not be used at the same time. Internal condoms and external condoms are available at some drug stores, community health centers, and AIDS service organizations.
