Hello again. My girlfriend and myself aren't sexually active, basically because if another condom broke I'd die and her last time was only her second and she wound up crying (we both had different partners then). Anywho, it'll take her a while to get over that, and I wouldn't have sex again unless there was protection at both ends. To the point, she's reluctant to go on the pill when(if) the time comes because she dislikes going on new medication. So what about a female condom + a normal condom? Or would there be issues with that? Ps. Sorry if I waffle on too much.
Using two condoms together is not a good idea, as the friction that creates can cause condoms to break. However, the pill and the condom aren't the only options out there. So why don't you and your partner take a look at this article and see if you can find a method that works for you: Birth Control Bingo!
Thanks, I could only think of implants, the patch etc for her, mostly invasive stuff with side-effects (why I asked about the female condom), I'd totally forgotten the NuvaRing. When the time come's I'll discuss it with her (wont bring it up now since I don't want her to feel pressured). THANK YOU!

Well, just so you know, the Ring is the same combination of hormones as the patch and the pill. I wouldn't call any of those options "invasive," but they do all carry the risks of the same basic group of possible side effects.
But since this is about BC for her, what seems the best thing to do is just give her the link rather than you shopping it for her.
