When you think of a condom usually the female condom isn't the first thing to come to mind. They are less commonly used than male condoms. This can be confusing to some. The good news is I am here to help educate you on the subject of female condoms.
The female condom is a pouch that is used during intercourse to prevent pregnancy and reduce the risk of sexually transmitted diseases. It has flexible rings at each end. Just before vaginal intercourse, it is inserted deep into the vagina. The ring at the closed end holds the pouch in the vagina. The ring at the open end stays outside the vaginal opening during intercourse. And during anal intercourse, it is inserted into the anus. Female condoms work to prevent pregnancy by covering the inside of the vagina. They collect semen when a man ejaculates. This keeps sperm from entering the vagina. Pregnancy cannot happen if sperm cannot join with an egg.
By covering the inside of the vagina or anus and keeping semen out, condoms reduce the risk of sexually transmitted infections. Effectiveness is a common concern when choosing a birth control method. Like all birth control methods, the female condom is more effective when you use it correctly. Almost everyone can use female condoms safely. In fact, female condoms can be used by just about any woman who can use a tampon. They are also safe to use during anal sex. Using a female condom is safe, simple, and convenient. Women and men like female condoms because female condoms allow women to share responsibility for preventing infection are easy to get — can be purchased in drug stores and some supermarkets can be inserted by a partner as part of sex play can be used by people who are allergic to latex can be used with oil-based as well as water-based lubricants do not have an effect on a woman's natural hormones do not require a prescription may enhance sex play —the external ring may stimulate the clitoris during vaginal intercourse stay in place whether or not a man maintains his erection.
How to insert the female condom:
1. Put spermicide or lubricant on the outside of the closed end.
2.Find a comfortable position. You can stand with one foot on a chair, sit on the edge of a chair, lie down, or squat.
3.Squeeze together the sides of the inner ring at the closed end of the condom and insert it into the vagina like a tampon.
4.Push the inner ring into the vagina as far as it can go — until it reaches the cervix.
5.Pull out your finger and let the outer ring hang about an inch outside the vagina.
6.If you want to use the female condom for anal intercourse, follow above instructions for inserting it into the anus.
7.During vaginal intercourse, it is normal for the female condom to move side to side. Stop intercourse if the penis slips between the condom and the walls of the vagina or if the outer ring is pushed into the vagina. As long as your partner has not yet ejaculated, you can gently remove the condom from the vagina, add extra spermicide or lubricant, and insert it once again.
8. If your partner has ejaculated outside the female condom into your vagina, you may want to consider using emergency contraception (morning after pill). Emergency contraception can prevent pregnancy if started up to five days after unprotected intercourse. The sooner you start it, the better it will work.

10. Squeeze and twist the outer ring to keep semen inside the pouch.
