Anastasia, 21, internal condom

I always, always worry about pregnancy.

The first time Anastasia used an internal condom, she and her boyfriend were on the beach, under the stars. (Sigh.) She had been given some samples at a clinic just a few days before and decided this was the time to try them out.

Anastasia had to open a few packs before figuring out exactly how they work (and because the first one got sand in it—youch!), but eventually she got the hang of it. Now she’s a pro at putting them in. And at taking them out without making a mess.

(We can help you figure out how to use them, too, but it still might take a couple tries. Just be patient and stick with it. And maybe try them out when there’s no sand around!)
