FC2 Female Condom, 3-pack
The FC 2 Female Condom, approved by the FDA, provides protection against unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV/AIDS.
The FC2 is a thin sheath made of nitrile polymer with a soft ring at each end. It is inserted vaginally, with one ring inserted internally and the other, larger ring resting outside of the body, covering part of the perineum and labia. The ring worn in the internal portion of the condom fits over the cervix and rests behind the pubic bone, acting as an anchor. The FC2 comes with complete instructions and diagrams on how to use them properly. Once you get the hang of it, they are a breeze for most people!
The FC2 comes pre-lubricated with a thin layer of silicone lubricant. Because it is made of nitrile (rather than latex), the FC2 is okay to use for persons with latex sensitivity. The FC2 is also compatible with all types of lubricants, including oil-based lubes.
Traditional "male" condoms (worn over the penis) and female condoms should not be used at the same time, because the added friction between the two condoms could cause them to break. Like male condoms, the FC2 female condom is intended for onetime use.
Though this is called the "Female Condom", it can be used by people of any gender. Indeed, many clever users have learned to use this condom for receptive anal intercourse. The internal ring can be removed when using the condom for receptive anal intercourse. Technically this is an "off-label" use, but as this is one of the few non-latex barriers on the market, it is an alternative option for such use.
FC2 is the second generation Female Condom to FC1, providing the same safety and efficacy during use. However, FC2 is made from softer and thinner synthetic nitrile material. FC2 is hypoallergenic and heat conductive, warming to body temperature for a more natural feel.
