My partner and I want to try female condoms because he thinks regular condoms are interrupting our flow. Anyone tried them? Can it help?
Hi @Emi, Female condoms are great for spontaneous sex because they can inserted before sex (up to 8 hrs before) and so are less likely to interrupt in the heat of the moment. Some couples even find the design (particularly the outer ring) can increase sexual pleasure while having sex.
When you are having sex, make sure that the penis enters into the condom (and not down the side). Remove the condom immediately after sex by gently pulling it out, twisting the large ring to prevent semen leaking out. When used correctly female condoms will also protect both you and your partner from STI’s.
