HOW TO USE FEMALE CONDOMS
What is a Female Condom?
A female condom is a cylindrical shaped, thin pouch made of polyurethane or nitrile. It has two rings at it's two ends. The condom is inserted inside the vagina. The end of the ring towards the cervix is sealed with polyurethane or nitrile, to prevent sperms from entering the cervix. The end protruding out of the vagina is open for the penis to enter. It is suggested to use lubricants along with female condoms (though avoid using petroleum based lubricants; they may tear the condom).
It is an every time use solution and if you want a child, simply stop wearing the condom.
