Female condom: Benefits and instructions for use

The female condom may be less well known than the male model, but it is just as effective. It is practical and has many advantages. How to use a female condom and what are its advantages? 

The advantages of the female condom 

Like the male condom, the female condom is very effective in protecting against STIs and unwanted pregnancies. Unlike other contraceptive methods used by women, the female condom does not affect the hormonal system or cycle length. It is suitable for all women and can even be used when breastfeeding or menstruating.

The female condom is much stronger. It breaks with difficulty during the sexual act. In addition, it is thin and offers more sensitivity during sexual play. It is the perfect condom for anyone who is allergic to latex. It is even possible to put it on more hours before the sexual act. However, it should be noted that the female condom is not as easy to put on as the male condom. 

How to put on the female condom? 

To put on the female condom, you must first wash your hands properly. Then gently open the condom package using the opening notch. To avoid puncturing the condom, avoid opening the package with your teeth or with sharp objects such as a knife or scissors.

 Once the package is open, get into a comfortable position and insert the inner ring of the condom inside the vagina. Push it in far with your index finger. The ring remains on the surface of the vagina. Make sure it covers the clitoris and the labia majora.

 If you have trouble placing your condom, consult a specialist for more advice. At the end of sexual play, just turn the outer ring on itself and easily remove the condom from the vagina. Like the male condom, the female condom is a single-use condom. And for added effectiveness, always check the expiration date before you buy it.
