Allergic to Latex
Hi Doc

I have a friend who says she is allergic to Latex and because of this her partner cannot use a condom during intercourse. I'm very concerned, what other methods can be used for protection! This would be to prevent any STD or AIDS from her partners.

She could try to get latex free condoms. They are not available in SA but can be ordered from overseas on the internet. The other option is the female condom.
