The female condom is a birth control (contraceptive) device that acts as a barrier to keep sperm from entering the uterus. The female condom is a soft, loosefitting pouch with a ring on each end. One ring is inserted into the v**ina to hold the female condom in place. The ring at the open end of the condom remains outside the v**ina.
An estimated 21 out of 100 women will become pregnant in the first year of typical use of female condoms — usually because they don’t use condoms every time they have s*x.
The female condom has a higher failure rate than the male condom. Condom failure means it’s possible to contract sexually transmitted infections or become pregnant. The female condom may not protect you if:
The condom breaks
The condom slips out of the v**ina
The man-hood slips between the v**ina and the outside of the condom
The outer ring of the condom gets pushed into the v**ina during s*x
The female condom may also cause discomfort during insertion, a burning sensation, itching or a rash.
