FDA To Review New Female Condom

Tough situation ahead! There's a new female condom in the pipeline, the FC2, reports this MSNBC article, "New female condom under FDA review - Company didn’t test whether new version prevents pregnancy, STDs." The design is the same as a female condom already on the market. The only difference is what the condom is made of, a new synthetic rubber material called nitrile. The manufacturer says no further studies are needed, and FDA staff are considering whether the company should have conducted specific trials to show how well the FC2 prevents women from contracting diseases or becoming pregnant. Interestingly, the manufacturer's stock price went up today.
