The female condom is a device that’s designed to prevent pregnancy and STIs. Female condoms are made from polyurethane, latex, or nitrile rubber and are inserted into the vagina during intercourse. They can be used with any type of birth control method and with male condoms, but they’re best suited for vaginal sex since they don’t have any external parts that might cause friction or skin irritation.

How well do female condoms work? 

Female condoms are 82% effective at preventing pregnancy. They work by stopping the release of sperm when you have sex. This prevents your partner from getting pregnant and helps prevent sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Female condoms are also more effective than male condoms because they provide a barrier between the vagina and an erection, so it’s harder for sperm to pass through them into your body.

Open the package carefully and place the condom in your palm.

Place one end of the ring over your index finger and hold it there with one hand while you squeeze together both sides of ring to form a triangle.

With this side facing out, insert it into your vagina until it is comfortable — you may need to wiggle or stretch it until you can get past any discomfort (you can also use lubricant on this area if needed).

Once inserted, turn over so that the open end faces up towards yourself; this should be easy to do because, when inserted correctly, female condoms will lie flat against vaginal walls without needing help from gravity!


Female condoms are available in drugstores and online. They’re relatively inexpensive but have some drawbacks compared to male condoms. Some people prefer them because they’re more comfortable than traditional methods of birth control, while others find them less effective at preventing pregnancy than male condoms or other methods like hormonal birth control pills. The good news is that even though they don’t work as well as some other methods out there, they do offer some benefits when used correctly!
