How do I use a female condom?


Check the expiration date on the package to make sure the condom is not too old to be effective.

The female condom can be inserted up to 8 hours before having sex. The female condom has 2 rings, one (the smallest, that is Inside of the condom in the closed side) should be inserted in the vagina, the other should be kept outside of the vagina all the time. To use a female condom, hold the soft inner ring between finger and thumb.  Place the closed end of the condom into the vagina. Then push the condom as far into the vagina as possible.  The outer ring should always remain lying against the outside of the vagina.  If the outer ring goes into the vagina during sex, stop and adjust it so it is outside again.

When sex is over, twist the condom and pull the end of it to remove it. Do this carefully; making sure no sperm enters the vagina.  Never reuse a condom.  The woman must use a new condom each and every time she has sex, even if she has intercourse again immediately.
