Providing female and male condoms leads to more instances of protected sex acts and reductions in STI incidence. Increasing the choice of methods available leads to increased uptake and more consistent and continued contraceptive use, partly because women’s contraceptive preferences vary during their lives.
The same applies when female condoms are made available in addition to male condoms: studies in Brazil, United States and Zimbabwe have proven that the female condom is effective in preventing unwanted pregnancies and HIV-infections because of an increase in protected sex acts.
