Women and their partners have at their disposal a number of safe, effective choices for birth control. Now there is another option to add to the list, one that provides several new features to help give women control over sexually transmitted diseases and reproduction through a nonprescription, simple-to-use device.The female condom, a barrier method to prevent pregnancy and disease, now is available in the United States, although distribution still is somewhat limited. Some family clinics are selling the device, which has been tested by 1,700 women in 30 countries.

It looks odd and even its supporters concede it takes some getting used to, but the first condom designed to be worn by women is about to go on the world market.In clinical trials, the new condom, also known as a vaginal pouch, appears to be far more effective than male condoms in protecting women from sexually transmitted diseases, while offering roughly equivalent protection against pregnancy."The idea of trying to get [some] men to wear a condom is impossible, and women are unfairly being put in the most vulnerable position," said Dr. Mervyn Silverman, president of the American Foundation for AIDS Research and a consultant to the company developing the device.

Nearly six years in the making, the new "female condom" has arrived. And while women aren't necessarily beating down the doors of area health centers to get a sample of the new device, interest is steadily growing.Planned Parenthood of Maryland's Howard Street office has sold out of its first batch of condoms. And in Harford County, AIDS educator Barbara Hernan-Clark has had little trouble rustling up an audience at county health department clinics in recent weeks for a sneak preview of the device that's been touted as protection against pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases, including acquired immune deficiency syndrome.

One way to avoid AIDS is not have sex. Abstinence is guaranteed to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease.So DON'T DO IT!Of course we recognize that such advice may not be followed, especially by young adults who believe they will live forever no matter what they do. Our fallback position is USE A CONDOM!Unfortunately, too many people are not following either suggestion. Condom sales are flat, despite ad campaigns to encourage their use.After years of resistance, network television finally allowed condoms out of the closet and onto prime time.

New York --One man announces that he wants to marry her. "Who are you? No, really, who are you?" he persists, proceeding to tell her who he is. As if she cares. Another man comes by to enthuse about . . . her writing. This is in a nice bar, dark and downtown, of cool-once-again martinis and the drift of an occasional Euro accent, and these are men who appear to be on dates with other women.This is the kind of thing that happens when you're Anka, soon if not already famous enough to drop the Radakovich part and go single-label like Cher or Madonna.

WASHINGTON -- A federal advisory panel recommended yesterday the approval of a condom designed for women -- a device that for the first time will allow women to protect themselves from sexually transmitted diseases in the deadly age of AIDS.If the condom gets final approval by the Food and Drug Administration, a woman will no longer "have to negotiate with a man or be dependent on a man . . . for protecting her," said Dr. Mervyn F. Silverman, president of the American Foundation for AIDS Research, who has served as a consultant to the manufacturer.
