Ladies, let’s talk about sex – specifically, how to make it safe and fun with the help of internal condoms! If you’re looking for a reliable and exciting form of contraception, look no further than the trustworthy female condom. It’s high time we ditch the stereotype that only men buy or wear condoms. Women should take charge of ensuring that they are safe from unwanted pregnancy or STDs during sexual activity. In this article, you will find ways to use internal condoms like a pro, so you can focus on pleasure without any worries.

What are internal condoms?

Internal condoms, also known as female condoms, are a type of barrier contraceptive that provides protection against pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Unlike traditional condoms, which are worn by males, internal condoms are worn by the female partner and inserted into the vagina before sexual activity.

In addition to being a form of contraception, internal condoms are also a great option for those who are allergic to latex as they are made of nitrile, which is hypoallergenic. Internal condoms also allow for more control during sex as the female partner can insert and remove the condom at their discretion. Plus, they can be used for both vaginal and anal sex, making them a versatile option for any couple.

How to use internal condoms?

Now that we know what internal condoms are. let’s find out how to use them properly:

Step 1: Check the expiration date

Before using an internal condom, always check the expiration date. Using an expired condom can reduce its effectiveness and increase the risk of STIs or unintended pregnancy. Also, there are no different sizes in internal condoms, so you don’t have to worry on that front.

Step 2: Open the package carefully

Tear open the package carefully and make sure not to use your teeth or scissors, as they can damage the condom. Check the condom for any tears, holes, or damage before use.

Step 3: Find a comfortable position

The next step is to find a comfortable position for insertion. The process is pretty similar to when inserting a tampon. You can either stand with one leg on a chair, sit on the edge of a chair, or lie down. You may also use water-based lubricants to make insertion easier and more comfortable.

Step 4: Insert the condom

Gently squeeze the sides of the inner ring of the condom and insert it into your vagina. Use your finger to push it up as far as possible while holding the outer ring outside of the vagina. The outer ring should remain outside the vagina to provide protection for the external genital area.
