THE FEMALE CONDOM   The female condom or Femidom is made of polyurethane and so is unlike to cause allergies. It is designed to fit inside the vagina and has two rings in it at either end. When opening the packet you should always ensure that you are careful not to rip the condom with fingernails or suchlike.  
To insert the female condom you should hold the closed end between your fingertips and insert it into the vagina (holding it open with your other hand) as far as it will go until it is snugly covering all the vaginal walls. Push two fingers inside the condom to ensure that it is in place. You may have to try out different positions to find the best one for easy insertion, many women find squatting or lying on the bed the most effective. The open end should then sit just outside the vaginal opening. The man should insert his penis into the inside of the condom when sex is taking place, make sure that he does not put it in outside accidentally. After intercourse is over then you should hold the outer ring and twist gently until the condom comes out of the vagina, dispose of it directly in the bin and do not re-use.  They are around 98% effective when used properly and protect against STIs/STD's.  

Female condoms are not always available free from your doctor, GUM clinic or family planning centre but it is always worth asking. One of the only draw backs with this method of contraception is the fact it can be relatively expensive.
