Since a H bond is intermolecular and a covalent bond is intramolecular, a molecule can have a covalent bond and then share a H bond with another molecule of the same species. I guess the effect of that would be that the molecule with the covalent bond (like H2O) would be attracted to another H2O via the H bond.
As a side note, there are both intermolecular and intramolecular hydrogen bonds, in that there are interactions involving hydrogen between separate molecules and within molecules. Intramolecular hydrogen bonds are just covalent bonds involving hydrogen.

Can you tell me what the difference is between inter- and intra- ?
