Where can I purchase spermicide or foam? What else is recommended to use along with a condom? Something that I can get with out a prescrition.

At Scarleteen people tend to recommend not using spermicides, as they can cause vaginal irritation which actually increases the risk of STD transmission.

If you want to know about other birth control options that you can use with condoms, check out Margaret Sanger’s Disneyland - An easy chart of your birth control options.

In addition, it's always a good idea to use water-based lubricant with condoms - it reduces the chances of breakage and makes things more comfortable and fun .

Check out the Safer Sex & Birth Control FAQ - it has lots of relevant info.
