I believe in data. So I recruited two of my friends and their partners, all of whom have a really good sense of humor, to test some female condoms for me. Why should we care?

Back to Your contraception guide. Female condoms are made from soft, thin synthetic latex or latex. They're worn inside the vagina to prevent semen getting to the womb. Female condoms are a barrier method of contraception worn inside the vagina.

Everything you need to know about the female condom
However, the similarities pretty much end there. For instance, female condoms are much larger than male ones and are meant to be inserted inside the vagina or anus as opposed to fitted on a penis. The original FC1 female condom is no longer in production, but the newer FC2 female condom is currently available in the U. The FC2 is made of a nitrile non-latex sheath and outer ring and a polyurethane inner ring.
Condoms are the only type of contraception that protect you against sexually transmitted infections STIs. When used correctly, female condoms protect against pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections STIs. Squeeze the smaller ring at the closed end and insert it into the top of the vagina, up to 8 hours before sex.
