What You Can Do to Create the Future of Female Condoms
The future of female condoms is about access and options. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) needs to hear your demand for more safe and effective tools for pregnancy and STI prevention. Reclassifying female condoms will help expand access to female condoms available in other countries and encourage innovators to create new female condom products. Learn more about our call for the FDA to reclassify female condoms.

How to Collect Signatures
Canvassing is an easy way to educate people about female condoms and gain their support for creating new safer sex options. Use the sample script below to help start your conversations about female condoms. Feel free to tailor it to your audience.
Ask if they would like to sign the petition:
“Do you have a minute to (choose one of the following intros):
- Increase access to safe STI prevention?
- Get more birth control options?
- Make new condoms that can be worn by people of any gender?
- Have better, safer sex?
Great, my name is _______. I am collecting signatures to expand safer sex options. Have you heard of female condoms? Female condoms are a great option for STI and pregnancy prevention. They help receptive partners of any gender control their health. But there is only one kind available in the U.S. If the FDA changes how they’re classified, it’ll be easier to make more varieties available in the US and around the world. More variety means more options to prevent STIs, HIV, and unintended pregnancy.
