In brief: After sex

Female condoms can be tricky to use properly, but removing them right after intercourse is best.

In brief: ImmediatelyAfterSex

The only woman-controlled, non-hormonal barrier contraceptive that not only prevents pregnancy but also STDs.
Failure rate of 5% w/ perfect use, up to 20% w/ typical use. Newer versions easier to use; men like them b/c they allow more freedom and friction. Careful when removing to avoid spill. Make sure the penis doesn't miss the condom. Can be found at your local reproductive health clinic.
