Description

If you use VCF, neither you nor your partner will be able to tell it’s there. This means you can enjoy sex with the knowledge that you are protected. VCF is the most comfortable spermicide ever developed. There are no bulky inserts that you have to leave in, no applicators to insert or clean. Since VCF doesn’t’ contain a lot of inactive ingredients like foams or gels, it isn’t runny or messy. It will simply wash away with your body’s natural fluids.

Effectiveness of any contraceptive method is directly related to the accuracy and consistency with which the method is used. Therefore, it’s important that you follow the directions carefully, otherwise, as with any contraceptive, reliability cannot be assured. This method of birth control must be used each and every time you have sex, regardless of the time of the month or the time of last application. Ask a doctor before use if you have been told that you should not become pregnant. Remember, no product can guarantee 100% effectiveness in pregnancy prevention.

Q: Can a water based lubricant be used along with this during intercourse?

submitted by Rez - 5 years ago
  • A: Yes, you can use water based lubricant, but I would recommend you insert this first, so it doesn't dissolve on your hands (hands need to be dry). Or you can also consider using a spermicide that could double as a lubricant.

    submitted byPlaytex user - 5 years ago
  • A: We use KY. This is not runny and does not work as a lubricant. Make sure you allow it to dissolve for about 15 minutes.

    submitted bycandygirl - 5 years ago
  • A: This works with water or oil based lubricant; you must insert the film first and allow it to dissolve.

Q: what would happen if you put all 9 in at once?

submitted by 幸子 - 5 months ago
  • A: The presence of to much of the active ingredient (nonoxynol9) could render the contraceptive ineffective. We do not recommend using more then one (1) film per act of intercourse/ every three (3)hours.

    submitted byApothecus - 4 months ago

Q: Will this be more affective if I’m already on birth control?

submitted by Birdie - 2 years ago
  • A: The VCF Film is 94% effective when used alone and correctly. When used with a condom it is 99% effective.

    submitted byApothecus - 1 year ago

Q: Will this be more affective if I’m also on birth control?

submitted by Birdie - 2 years ago
  • A: The VCF Film is 94% effective when used alone and correctly. When used with a condom it is 99% effective.

    submitted byApothecus - 1 year ago

Q: Can my partner relieve (yk what i mean) himself in me and how far does the product have to go back to work?

submitted by Layla444 - 3 years ago
  • A: Yes, spermicides are meant to allow for ejaculation inside your vagina. Insert the Film as high as possible without causing discomfort.

    submitted bykdapothecus - 2 years ago

Q: Does this work and how does it work?

submitted by Yaireh - 3 years ago
  • A: VCF works by manually inserting the film high into the vagina at least 15 minutes before intercourse. Once dissolved it creates a gel coating which contains spermicide that kills sperm on contact for up to 3 hours. When used correctly, VCF can be 94% effective in pregnancy prevention.

    submitted bykdapothecus - 3 years ago

Q: so how does this product work im in my teens 15-16 & would like to know how to use it

submitted by umyeah - 3 years ago
  • A: VCF works by manually inserting the film high into the vagina at least 15 minutes before intercourse. Once dissolved it creates a gel coating which contains spermicide that kills sperm on contact for up to 3 hours.

    submitted bykdapothecus - 3 years ago

Q: Does it have a taste?

submitted by Sillelyn - 4 years ago
  • A: VCF does not contain any added flavor or scent, but may taste medicinal.

    submitted bykdapothecus - 3 years ago

Q: So, if I'm not mistaken, if inserted properly and the 20 minutes is waited prior to intercourse, ejaculating into my partner won't be an issue?

submitted by Jeff - 4 years ago
  • A: Yes, if used correctly, VCF is 94% effective in pregnancy prevention

    submitted bykdapothecus - 4 years ago

Q: I've been prone to yeast infections due to my SLE lupus (autoimmune disease) I was wondering if anyones gotten a yeast infection after using this or can give me advice.

submitted by Lunaflower98 - 4 years ago
  • A: if you're prone to yeast infections, inserting any "foreign" product is probably not advisable as there's always a chance that it can throw off your pH. that said, there is nothing in the ingredients that is known to cause yeast infections

Easy to insert after I shower w DRY hands. I do not feel the edges others mentioned, maybe bc I insert fast to avoid it sticking anywhere…It may stick very slightly, just keep pushing it up and it will stay. We don’t notice any smell or odor at all.

Hormone free birth control! It works really well! Like other reviewers, the strip is heat sensitive and melts to release the spermicide. I’ve noticed that during insertion if I leave my finger in for a minute it melts off (just a tmi helpful tip)

After about 12 years of using the pill (with many side effects), my doctor recommended trying a hormone-free option. My hubby hates the IUD so my only decent option was spermicide. I've been off the pill for 3 months now and I'm the happiest I've been in a LONG time. I'm also not pregnant. This film is easy to use and definitely works. My only (very minor) gripe is that it has to dissolve for 15 minutes... and sometimes that 15 minutes is tough to wait through. I have the gel applicator also for those RIGHT NOW moments. Both A+ from me.

works but after buying vcf gel pre filled applicators love that wayyyyy MORE for some reason the film was annoying for me to use cause it would dissolve during insertion and it would have pointy corners no matter how small i made it but either way works but i prefer the gel <3

It’s a little hard to get up in there, and it sticks to your finger when you try to pull your finger out, but other than product insertion difficulties, I’m pretty sure it works. Haven’t gotten pregnant yet haha.

boyfriend is allergic to latex and i don't want to get a depo shot, so i've been using this for 2 years. never failed me. i do use as directed, always wait 20 minutes before sex and never more than 2 1/2 hours. it can smell a bit mixed with other fluids, but a small price to pay for safe sex.
