September 16 is Global Female Condom Day, a day to celebrate the lesser-known cousin of the external (“male”) condom!
In honor of this underrated safer sex tool, we made an infographic you might find handy. Still got questions? We talk more about what internal (“female”) condoms are and how to use them here. If you’re 10-22 years old and near NYC, you can also stop by the Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center for free, confidential healthcare. We’ll even show you how to use internal condoms and send you home with a few for free!
The Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center is located in New York City. It provides comprehensive, confidential, judgment free health care at no charge to over 10,000 young people every year.
