The newest Female Condom, FC2, available in Australia only from GLYDE Health, is a soft, transparent, non-latex sheath made of nitrile polymer. It is 17 centimetres long (about the same length as a male condom) with a flexible ring at each end. It is inserted into the vagina prior to sexual intercourse and may help reduce the possibility of pregnancy and may help reduce the risk of sexually transmitted sexually transmitted infections (STIs). The inner ring aids insertion and secures the device in place during intercourse, while the softer outer ring remains outside the vagina.
Femidoms are available in single packs. Each condom is designed for one use only. Instructions for use are printed on each Femidom pack.
