Yes, tests have proved that Fémidom®, the female condom, is just as effective at birth control and preventing the spread of STIs as the male condom. The female condom is a barrier method that provides double protection for the user and her partner. It is made from nitrile rubber, has been approved by the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the World Health Organisation (WHO), and been proven to match the male condom in terms of safety, effectiveness and performance.
