FDA Approves New Female Condom

On Wednesday, the Female Health Company announced that the FDA has approved its FC2 Female Condom for use in preventing pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, including HIV.
This FC2 condom has the same design and the same instructions for use as the common FC1 female condom many of us are familiar with. However, the new female condom is made of synthetic rubber rather than polyurethane, making it about 30% less expensive than the original version. Also, the FC2 is manufactured through a less-expensive process than the company’s original version, which should allow health groups to distribute larger quantities to women in Africa and other areas heavily impacted by HIV/AIDS.
With the FDA approval, the lower-cost, new version of the female condom will now be available in the United States.
Following this link will allow you to view a PDF information sheet on the FC2: http://www.femalehealth.com/pdf/FC2%20Information%20Sheet.pdf
