Why the female condom?

Why should you consider the female condom?

0

The female condom has been become more popular but is sadly still not readily available to all. Here are some of the reasons why you should consider this as a means of protecting yourself against unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

  • The female condom can be inserted up to eight hours prior to intercourse.
  • It is made of polyurethane and not latex which means that it is safe to use oil-based lubes with it. Not that you necessarily need it because it is very well lubricated.
  • It is a female-controlled method.
