Take matters into your own hands with the newest Female Condoms. Female condoms are a soft, transparent non latex sheath made of nitrile polymer. Usually about 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 provides protection against both pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including HIV/AIDS. The inner ring aids insertion and secures the device in place during intercourse, while the softer outer ring remains outside the vagina.
