Suggest to a new user that she practice putting in and taking out the condom before the next time she has sex. Reassure her that correct use becomes easier with practice. A woman may need to use the female condom several times before she is comfortable with it.
Suggest she try different positions to see which way insertion is easiest for her.
The female condom is slippery. Some women find insertion easier if they put it in slowly, especially the first few times.
If a client is switching from another method to the female condom, suggest that she continue with the previous method until she can use the female condom with confidence.
