The female condom is a thin, soft loose-fitting polyurethane plastic pouch that the lines the vagina. It has two flexible rings: an inner ring at the closed end, used to insert the device inside the vagina and to hold it in place, and an outer ring which remains outside the vagina and covers the external genitalia.

The penis is directed into the pouch through the ring at the end, which stays outside the vaginal during the intercourse.

The female was first made from polyuthrane. This version is officially called the FC FEMALE CONDOM. A newer version is made of nitrile rubber and called FC2. It is made from natural latex; the same material is used in male condoms.

The newer nitrile condoms are less likely to make potentially distracting crinkling noises. FC1 and FC2 are the only female condoms encouraged by the World Health Organisation. They sold under many brand names, including Reality Femidom, Dominique, Femy, My Femy, Protective and Care.

Ever since the massive campaign of this female condom, it’s getting more acceptability on the scene as more and more now carries the female conduct in their purse.
And there are a lot of reasons why women prefers this condom.

The number one reason is the Men factor. Quite a lot of men don’t like using the male condom during intercourse. They give a lot of reasons why they don’t want to use condom, this include reasons like; A condom spoils my enjoyment of sex, if you really love me, you should trust me. So the female condom helps a lady to protect herself anytime her partner refuses to use the male condom.
It is more comfortable to men, less decrease in sensation than with the male latex condom. Female condoms do not constrict the penis as do latex condoms. As a result, sensitivity of the male partner may not be substantially reduced.

The disadvantages are very minimal compared to its advantages. The major disadvantages of the female condom centered on one of the female condom’s advantages; coverage of the external genitalia. This coverage had a decidedly negative impact on the device’s aesthetics include dislike of the appearance of the device, noise associated with use, size and partner resistant.

Also difficulties associated with insertion or removal of the female condom, discomfort, messiness and inconvenience associated with use and movement of the device during use. There are also a few cases of the penis slipping between the device and the woman’s body and slippage and breakage of the device itself could happen.
