Can female condoms be used with regular condoms?

Female condoms and regular condoms should not be used together. Doing so can cause them to rub or stick together, causing one or both to break. Use these items individually but not together.

No, female condoms should not be used at the same time as male condoms, because the added friction between the two condoms could cause them to tear.
