What’s a female condom like:

The female condom is a thin sheath or bag type pouch. Female condom works same as the male condoms that create a protection film against the lining the entire length of the vagina. Female condom serves the same purpose of preventing STDs or STI's and unwanted pregnancies. The female condom is one of the best birth control methods and better than the oral contraceptive pills cause it also have adverse effects on health. 

What are the advantages of Female Condom:

In comparison to a male condom, it’s much thinner and longer, covering the lining of the vagina and instead of latex, the female condom is made up of nitrile. The upside is that female condom much more pleasurable than male condom because it’s thinner than the male condom. It also has two rings which help improve stimulation and pleasure. Female condom also provides better lubrication than the male condom and makes sex less painful and more pleasurable. It’s also very handy during menstruation because it traps the blood. Also, since it’s made out of nitrile fabric, it’s great for someone who’s allergic to latex. The female condom is one of the best birth control methods and better than the oral contraceptive pills cause it also have adverse effects on health. 

What are the disadvantages of female condom:

Where advantages come, there are some disadvantages too of using a female condom. Firstly, the female condom is expensive than the male condom and while a pack of three male condoms cost Rs 25, female condoms cost Rs 100. Secondly, many users have complained that it’s hard to put on the female condoms and requires the woman to lie down completely, raise her legs high and guide the condom into her vagina while using a lubricant and it's a cumbersome process. This is a possible downside because during moments of passion people really don't have time to read instructions!

Here are some tips for better usage:

  • Guide it in as far as you can without twisting it
  • When putting your partner’s penis into to vagina, make sure it doesn’t slip into the space between the vagina and the condom
  • Do not use it with a male condom
  • If it slips out during intercourse, use a new one with better lubrication

Try not to use two condoms together. It can break the condoms and pregnancy can happen. One more thing I have studied that you can insert your female condom up to eight hours before intercourse, but you should remove it immediately following ejaculation.

It is a good thing that you can use lubricant or spermicide to improve the comfort and effectiveness of your female condom. Never ever use it with a male condom, it can cause burning sensation and irritation during sexual intercourse.
