The female condom remains unpopular

Although it is significantly less popular than a regular condom, if used correctly, it is 95 percent effective when it comes to preventing Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) and pregnancy. The male condom is 98 percent. So why doesn’t anyone really use them? This was a huge debate at the recent HIV/AIDS workshop hosted by PEPFAR Botswana.
