Despite the fact that they may seem daunting at first, female condoms are quite easy to use. Putting in a female condom is similar to putting in a tampon. You may find it challenging at first, but all you need is a little practice.
1. Use a new condom every time you have sex.
2. Open the package carefully to avoid tearing it.
3. The condom should be placed before there is any contact between the penis and the vagina or anus.
4. Apply lubricant to the closed end of the condom.
5. Place it in a position that feels comfortable to you. You may want to lie down, squat, or stand with one leg on a chair.
6. Squeeze the ring on the closed end of the condom together and insert it in your vagina as far as it will go, just like a tampon. For anal sex, put it as far as it will go into your bottom.
7. Let go of the ring so that it opens and stays put.
8. Allow the ring on the other end to hang about an inch outside your vagina or bottom.
When your partner is done with ejaculation, carefully remove it and throw it in the dustbin.
