New Female Condom Gets FDA Approval

By: Catherine Strawn / March 15, 2009

A new-and-improved female condom has been approved by the FDA. Even though a lot of Frisky commenters aren’t keen on using this form of birth control, it’s one small step for womankind, as this new version is thinner, less noisy (yes, that’s right), and less expensive. Don’t look for the FC2 condom in stores yet, though — it should be available in about a year. [Reuters]
