A Dual Protection or ‘Double Dutch’ approach to contraception gives the best protection against pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) for sexually active people. Most commonly, people practise Dual Protection by using condoms and the pill at the same time. You can also use other hormonal contraception methods (e.g the Mini-Pill, the Injection, the Implant, the Patch) with condoms to help prevent pregnancy and protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
