A US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisory panel has recommended that the female condom Reality be approved for contraception and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) prevention.
Final FDA approval will mark the first official recognition of a woman-controlled method for protection against sexually transmitted disease.
A female condom allows women to use just one method to respond to the twin anxieties of AIDS and unwanted pregnancy.
In those couples in which the man refuses to wear a male condom, the availability of a female condom makes protection possible for the first time.
