Internal (or “female”) condoms

Internal condoms (sometimes called female condoms or femi-doms) are like other condoms except they fit inside the vagina instead of covering the penis.

If they are used correctly they are 95% effective in protecting against pregnancy. Female condoms are made of polyurethane and are slightly wider than male condoms.
