Product Description

Other Information: In clinical studies about 1 out of 10 women (9-11%) got pregnant during the first year of use when using this product correctly all the time. The possibility of getting pregnant increases to about 1 out of 7 women (13-16%) when this product was not used correctly. Studies have raised safety concerns that products containing the spermicide nonoxynol 9 can irritate the vagina and rectum. Sometimes this irritation has no symptoms. This irritation may increase the risk of getting HIV/AIDS from an infected partner. You can use nonoxynol 9 for birth control with or without a condom if you have sex with only one partner who is not infected with HIV and who has no other sexual partners or HIV risk factors. When used correctly every time you have sex, latex condoms greatly reduce, but do not eliminate the risk of catching or spreading HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Use a latex condom without nonoxynol 9 if you or your sex partner has HIV/AIDS, multiple sex partners, or other HIV risk factors. Ask a health professional if you have questions about your best birth control and STD prevention methods. Store at 68-77 degrees F (20-25 degrees C).
