The new female condom, the FC2, has been getting a lot of press these days. This week, Walgreens pharmacies have begun to stock the FC2, providing women a barrier method allowing them full control over their sexual health, and directly confronting the issue of limited access to female condoms, which, according to the The Chicago Female Condom Campaign, “has long been a barrier to use”. Check out the press release here.
The DC DOH is on board too, with DC’s Doin’ It!, a new campaign to promote use of the female condom. The DC’s Doin’ It! site has everything from where to buy the FC2 (or where to pick them up for free!), to instructions, to community resources.
Stay tuned for more on the FC2!
