Think of it like inserting a tampon or menstrual cup – the position you use to do that will probably work well for using a internal condom, too. You can squat, prop one leg up, sit, or lie down to do this – it’s completely up to you. Once in position, push the inner ring into your vaginal opening as far as it will go. The FC2® can be a little slippery – just take it out and try again if you need to.
When properly placed, it will be near your pubic bone, resting – not rubbing against or hitting – your cervix. If it’s not inserted correctly, you may feel some discomfort. Simply shift the ring using your fingers until it sits comfortably. The outer ring will be visible outside of your vagina.
Important Note: Practice, practice, practice! Inserting the internal condom can be tricky at first, but practicing before it’s time to have sex will give you the confidence you need to do it correctly!
