How effective are women’s condoms?

A women’s condom has a ring-like formation on either end and is worn inside the vagina during intercourse. Its closed-end rests near the cervix and lines itself against the vaginal wall and catches any ejaculate that the penis releases during intercourse. They are reasonably effective and can protect against unintended pregnancy, STIs, and STDs. However, it is advisable to use them in combination with other contraception like copper T and pills.

An important thing to note, if a girl is wearing a condom, then the guy should not. When the guy and the girl both wear their respective condoms, the friction can cause either or both the condoms to tear off and expose them to STIs/STDs.
