My boyfriend is allergic to Latex, what are we suppose to use instead of condoms?

There are two alternatives to latex condoms for people who are concerned about reducing the risk of sexually transmitted infections and unintended pregnancy.

1. Female condoms are made of polyurethane. When used correctly and consistently, they’re up to 95 percent effective against pregnancy, and they also reduce the risk of infection. Currently, the only brand on the market is FC Female Condom.

2. Male condoms made out of various plastics are also available. Avanti, Avanti Bare, Skyn, and Trojan Supra are common brands of plastic male condoms. Plastic condoms (both female and male) are usually more expensive than latex condoms.
