The female condom may look difficult to use upon first appearance, but they are very simple to use once you have had a little practice. It is inserted into the vagina much like a tampon, after applying spermicide or lubricant. The inner ring is pushed into the vagina as far as it can go, while the outer ring should hang about one inch outside the vagina and be visible. You can also use the female condom for safe anal intercourse, inserting it into the anus in a similar manner.
Like male condoms, the female condom should only be used once. To remove the female condom, simply pinch and twist the outer ring to keep the semen inside, then gently pull it out before throwing away.
