|Condom - Internal (female condom)
What is it?
The female/internal condom is a soft, disposable, polyurethane sheath.
How does it work?
The female/internal condom lines the vagina completely, preventing direct contact between the penis and vagina, and blocking the exchange of body fluids.

Does it prevent sexually transmitted infections?
To reduce the risk of sexually transmitted infections (STI’s), including HIV, use a condom with another method of contraception. This is referred to as dual protection. Most birth control or contraceptive methods will not protect a person from STI’s.
To be effective, birth control must be used correctly and consistently. If you want to prevent pregnancy, choose a method that you and your partner will use every time you have intercourse.
Talk to your health care provider or visit a sexual health clinic to find out what might work best for you and your partner.
