Internal condom (formerly called “female condom”)

2008 July 09

The internal condom is a polyurethane sheath that covers the walls of the vagina or anus during penetration, to prevent pregnancy and/or infections.

You can buy receptive condoms at “our sexual health clinics”:/about/locations and most drug stores.

The internal condom can be difficult to insert and use at first, but it gets easier with practise.
