Rigorous research has been conducted with the Woman’s Condom (branded as O’LavieTM in China) in several countries to evaluate and validate the product’s

safety, performance, and acceptability. These studies have found that the

Woman’s Condom is safe, acceptable, and easy to use, and that it performs well when compared to other female condom products.1-5

Additional clinical studies are in process, including a contraceptive effectiveness study taking place in the United States.

For optimal effectiveness, the Woman’s Condom must be used consistently and correctly each time a couple has sex.
