Cheaper Version of the Female Condom Waiting Approval by FDA

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?

Honestly I have no idea about female condoms. If I were still looking for a bc method I might check them out but I have an IUD and I love it.

Ok, seriously! why not just use garbage bags and get it over with? this looks like it belongs in a recycling bin. We woman already sacrifice so much. I say if the guy is not willing to wear a hat he has no business being in the party

Ok, I'm having a hard time imagining how this works. Do you slide the whole thing inside you?? Does it hang out and then gets pushed in by him??

i cant imagine using one. not to sound too graphic, but i cant imagine this would turn a guy on in any way possible. condoms enough are kind of annoying, but i'd probably feel super unsexy with a grocery-bag-looking-thing hanging out. blech. no thanks!

It seems like so much "work" the diaphram is one thing but this latex baby seems a big much and it has nothing to do with price. I don't see my self using one.

you know, I tried them once, and even though they provide better protection than regular condoms, it's really too much of a hassle. So while I'm not interested I knew a few of my gay friends who will be :D
