Our expert says:
Female condoms are an effective barrier method to prevent pregnancy and HIV if properly used, yes. They take a little planning as they need to be inserted a little while before sex to allow time to settle/fit your vagina more comfortably. It may be that this allows for more sensation for the man and you may need to use waterbased lube (not others - eg oil based) to prevent too much friction and possibly damaging the condom. Give it a try so that you have more than one option - I like your thinking!
