Caja Medical Director, María Eugenia Villalta, said the opinion of the women in Goicoechea (San José) and Upala (Alajuela) that took part in the study is vital to the use of the female condom, since it they (the women) who should ask for the contraceptive to protect them against infections and unwanted pregnanices, rather than be imposed on them.

The CCSS says it expects soon to make available the new contraceptive option in the country.
