The FC2 female condom is a strong, thin, and flexible nitrile sheath 6.5 inches in length (the same length as a male condom). Worn by the woman during sex, the female condom has a flexible polyurethane ring at the closed end of the sheath (the end that is inserted into the vagina) and a soft nitrile ring at the open end of the sheath (the end that remains outside of the vagina.) There is silicone-based lubricant on the inside of the condom.
The female condom works to prevent pregnancy and STIs, including HIV, by lining the vagina. The man does not have to have an erection for the female condom to be used which can enhance couple intimacy. The female condom offers another option to the male condom and is a great choice for people with latex sensitivity.
