Preproduction sample of Femshield Female Condom, by Medicor International Ltd., 1989
The ‘Femshield’ is a flexible female condom. It consists of a loose-fitting sheath and two rings. One polyurethane ring sits outside the vagina and is a guide for insertion. A separate removable ring inserts and anchors the condom in place. Female condoms give the woman full control of her contraceptive choice. They protect from sexually transmitted infection and pregnancy if used correctly. This is a preproduction sample. Female condoms have been available in Europe since 1992. The Femshield was developed by British firm Medicor International Limited.
