Female condoms are more flexible than male ones and some can be inserted upto eight hours prior to sexual intercourse. The idea is to use the product properly for maximum pleasure and benefit.
While taking the condom out of the wrapper make sure not to use any sharp objects. Simply tear along the jagged side. Run your fingers along the body of the condom to ensure equal distribution of the lubricant.
Hold the smaller end which is the inner ring between your thumb and index finger as you you stretch and narrow it. This is the part you need to insert inside the vagina while holding the larger outer ring outside.
Be gentle as you insert the smaller ring. Use extra lubricant if required on the condom as well as on your fingers and inside the vagina. Female condoms are either made of polyurethane, synthetic nitrile or latex like the male condoms. In the former two you can use oil based lubricants but latex requires only water based ones.
Once the inner ring has passed through the outer lips introduce your index finger inside the condom to push it further. Ideally, the condom should slip inside without difficulty while the larger outer ring covers the outer lips.
You are now ready for sexual intercourse. It is advisable to lubricate the penis and introduce it inside as gently as possible. You also have to make sure that he does not enter you between the condom and the vaginal walls but into the body of the condom. If you feel friction or vaginal dryness try to remedy with more lubricant. If its uncomfortable still try changing the condom.
After ejaculation do not stand up as it would case spillage. Remove while lying down by twisting the outer ring as you pull it out.
Discard hygienically in a tissue paper as you would a male condom or a sanitary napkin. Do not re use.
