Female Condom

Female condoms are a great alternative to male condoms. They might seem a bit intimidating at first, but with a practice, you will be a pro soon.

How to put on a female condom:

  1. Squeeze the inner ring (the smaller one), making the sides touch.
  2. Push the inner ring in as far as it will go. Leave the larger ring on the outside.
  3. Guide your partner's penis into the outer ring.
  4. When you've finished, twist the condom three times, then pull it out.

After putting in a lubricated condom, some women said they had their first orgasms!

Tips for female condoms

Make it sexy!
‘Tease me, tease me, until I lose control.’
Get your partner to put the condom in your vagina, and then using fingers or his penis to gently massage the outer ring on your labia or clitoris.

Look but don’t touch
Alternatively, you could put the condom in while your partner watches. Tell your partner that he can look but not touch!

Bump and grind
Many women like it when their partner hits the inner ring of the female condom. Try it to see if you like it too. Apparently, this is pretty erotic for the guys – so much so that in Ghana men buy female condoms to masturbate with!

You’re making me so hot
Unlike most male condoms, female ones are made out of nitrile, which is thinner than latex. So much so that when you’re having intercourse you can feel your partner’s body heat.

Other uses

While the manufacturers say that female condoms are to be used for vaginal sex, some couples say they are also great for anal sex. That's because they can be inserted before you get started, and can be removed after you are done, potentially reducing a mess.

Hi Divinnah, Thank you for your contribution. Indeed when condoms are used correctly and consistently they will help prevent unplanned pregnancies and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) including HIV.
Hi Shirley, generally, the side effects of birth control pills are very small. Condoms are great, especially because they can protect from STDs, but unfortunately, they are not the most reliable method when it comes to preventing pregnancies.
Interesting, They don't explain the difference between the two types of injections at the clinic, I usually take the 3 month injection to save me trips to the clinic, but it's actually better to take the monthly injection coz the risk of getting pregnant is lower. Thanks
my gal went through the 3 month injection(contraceptives)...afterwards she started experiencing breakthrough bleeding on daily bases...wotz wrong???!

Hi Doreen, condoms are effective when used correctly and consistently. However, because of the human element in the used of condoms there is a failure rate. At times the used will either not use the condoms correctly or they will not use the condoms each time they have sex compromising the effectiveness of condoms.
