How to Use a Female Condom
Condoms are the only contraceptive method that effectively prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases and although condoms are a method commonly used by boys, there is also an alternative for women. Despite that, many girls do not dare to buy it for fear that its use is too complex, but it's actually easy to use these condoms - with no discomfort during sexual intercourse. On oneHOWTO we explain in detail how to use a female condom.
Female condoms are effective for both vaginal and anal sex, trapping the sperm that is ejaculated during sex and preventing the possibility of one swimming up the vagina into the uterus. Besides helping to prevent unwanted pregnancies, condoms also protect us from nasty sexually transmitted diseases.
Before inserting a female condom, it is ideal to apply some spermicide on the outer side of the closed end, thus after ejaculation this additional contraceptive lessens the chance of pregnancy.
Putting a female condom inside your vagina is very simple. First remove the condom from its packaging with care. Take the female condom and put your hand through the closed end and fold the hoop using your thumb, index and middle fingers to place it inside the vaginal tract as you would do with a tampon or a menstrual cup.
With your hands in the same position, smoothly place the female condom inside your vagina. Don't worry, it is a very soft material that will not cause any damage to your inner workings.
The best position to insert the female condom inside the vagina is to lie on your bed with your legs wide open. Remember you should relax, as it will be easier to insert the condom. If you prefer, as you would do with a tampon, you can insert the female condom by lifting one leg up and resting it on a chair. Insert it in this position of you prefer.
You will know that the female condom is well positioned when the upper ring has reached the end of the cervix, touching the wall. The lower open end of the female condom will be visible and ready for penetration. This will be in this hole where the penis or sex toy enters your body, protecting the vaginal walls from contact with any fluids, including semen.
To remove the female condom after intercourse, you must take the protruding end and fold the hoop with the help of your index finger and thumb, turn the condom a few times to prevent the escape of semen during the removal process. Gently slide the condom out of your vaginal canal to completely remove the condom.
The female condom can be used following the same instructions also for anal sex.
Take note that while you use vaginal condoms, penetrations must be moderate because forceful movements, thrusting or withdrawal of the penis unexpectedly, may result in the female condom breaking or falling out. In that case you should have a backup method, such as the morning-after pill.
Female condoms are for one single use. Under no circumstances should you use it again once you're done.
