Female Condom

Female condom

Providing both pregnancy and STI prevention

A short-acting method of contraception
The female condom is a barrier contraception method for preventing pregnancy and STIs.

When used correctly, condoms are highly effective. Condoms are also the only contraceptive method that protect against both pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV and syphilis.

Advantages of a female condom

The female condom can offer several advantages as a method of contraception:

  • You only need to use them during sex
  • They help to protect both partners from some sexually transmitted infections, including HIV
  • There are no serious side-effects from using condoms
  • Female condoms are easily available.

Things to consider

When deciding if the female condom is right for you, here are a few quick facts you should consider:

  • Female condoms can sometimes get pushed completely inside during sex or come out, which is why they are not always as good as some other forms of contraception and may require some practice to use correctly
  • If the condom breaks or tears, pushes inside or falls off then you may need to use an emergency contraception immediately afterwards.
