Some people may be allergic to the materials used to make the female condom, but you can try different brands or materials is this affects either partner. Putting the female condom in immediately before sex can interrupt the flow of sexual activity, but many women prefer to insert it sometime before sex takes place.
Some women do not like the fact that one end of the condom is visible outside the vagina. They are also more expensive and harder to find in the shops than male condoms. The condoms are flexible but tough, although they can tear if inserted incorrectly.
