The female condom is a form of birth control that helps prevent pregnancy and reduce the spread of STDs (sexually transmitted diseases). How does a female condom work? Female condoms can be used for vaginal sex or anal sex. A female condom is a plastic pouch with flexible rings at each end that is inserted into the vagina or anus with the outside ring staying on the exterior of the vaginal or anal opening during sexual intercourse.

If you're concerned about preventing STDs but don't want to use an ordinary condom, you might want to try one of these. It's called a female condom and while it looks a little strange, it's great because it gives you control of preventing pregnancy and reducing the risk of sexually transmitted infections. The female condom is a plastic pouch with two rings, one at each end. The inner ring is squeezed and inserted into the vagina before sex and the outer ring stays outside the vagina and covers part of the vulva. After sex, just remove it and throw it away.

The female condom works by collecting semen when a man ejaculates --- you know, comes. This keeps sperm from entering the vagina. No sperm, no pregnancy. In fact, less than five (5) out of one hundred (100) women will get pregnant each year if they use a female condom correctly every time they have sex. That goes up to about twenty (20) out of one hundred (100) women if they don't always use it the right way. It can be used for vaginal sex or inserted into the anus to reduce the risk of STDs during anal sex. There are a lot of other benefits to using the female condom. There are no side effects, no prescriptions, and no trips to the doctor. Except for the latex condom, it can also be used with any other method of birth control.
