The female condom is a thin, soft, loose-fitting sheath that keeps semen inside the condom and out of your vagina.
Each condom has a soft ring on each end. The inner ring at the closed end of the sheath is used to insert the condom inside the vagina and to hold it in place during intercourse.
Here are 6 other interesting things about female condoms you should know.
- The female condom can be used with both oil-based and water-based lubricants. In the event of breakage during sex, use emergency contraception as soon as possible and also get tested for sexually transmitted infections
- Female condoms need not be used at the same time with male condoms as the friction between both could cause the condoms to break or tear.
We know many women shy away from the condom topic but it pays to protect yourself and be in charge of your own health and sex life! Remember to get tested and practise safe sex at all times.
