FDA Female Condom Reclassification Petition


Tell the FDA: Pave the Way for More Female Condom Options


Dear U.S. Food and Drug Administration,

I imagine a future where people can take better control of their sexual health by using a variety of options to reduce the risk of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV, and unintended pregnancy. I dream of a day when product developers create innovative new condoms that receptive partners can use to protect themselves and their partners.

In my ideal future, a variety of female condoms are accessible and available to all people who want and could benefit from them.

I urge the FDA to make this imagined future a reality by reclassifying female condoms from a Class III to a Class II medical device.

This reclassification would:

  • Reflect the latest evidence on female condom safety and efficacy.
  • Help bring safe and effective female condoms available in other countries to the U.S.
  • Encourage product innovation among condom developers.
  • Put female condoms in the same medical device category as male condoms.
  • Align U.S. regulations with other global health regulatory agencies.

Please make such a future possible!
