Female Condom

concept
A thin polyurethane sheath, shaped like a small pouch with flexible rings at each end. The ring at the closed end holds the pouch in place inside the vagina, while the ring at the open end remains outside the vagina. The pouch collects semen and prevents it from entering the vagina.

success rate
With typical use, 21 out of 100 women will become pregnant. With perfect use, five out of 100 will become pregnant.

groovy part
Protects against STDs, including HIV, and you can get it without a prescription. Also, you can insert it up to eight hours before having intercourse. If you are allergic to latex, this polyurethane condom is a good alternative.

drag factor
The outside ring can slide inside the vagina during intercourse; also, caution should be used to make sure the man’s penis doesn’t slip around the side of the condom. Can be awkward to use at first; must be removed right after intercourse, before you stand up, to prevent semen leakage.

how to get it
Buy it at drugstores or supermarkets or get it from family planning clinics; the cost, $2-$4 each.
