Even if you aren't a fan of using condoms, we can all agree that they are an easy, effective, and inexpensive tool for preventing pregnancy and STIs. Some guys put up a stink about putting one on though, which is why female condoms are so great. They allow the woman to have some control about how she protects herself so she doesn't have to rely on her partner. However, female condoms are pricey, about $2 a piece, and if that's your only form of birth control, imagine how much money you'd be spending each month!
I'm here with some good news though. The FDA is evaluating a second-generation female condom (FC2), and within six months, it's expected to be approved. This new version will be like the first generation model, but they'll be 30 percent cheaper.
Tell me, do you think you'd be more apt to use female condoms because of the decrease in cost?
