Female condom

(Science: gynaecology) a soft, loose-fitting polyurethane sheath, closed at one end, with flexible rings at both ends.

The device is inserted into the vagina by compressing the inner ring and pushing it in. Properly positioned, the ring at the closed end covers the cervix, and the sheath lines the walls of the vagina. The outer ring remains outside the vagina, covering the labia.
