Description

With VCF Vaginal Contraceptive Gel Pre-Filled Applicators, you are in control of your body and in protecting yourself against unwanted pregnancy. Enjoy intimacy more with the knowledge that you have protected yourself from getting pregnant.

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.

Used it religiously for a month and so far it works! Application process is similar to preseed which I love. The gel also acts like a lubricant too. No discomfort for either my partner nor I.

Been using this product for months! I have a three-year-old and decided to come off birth control because of some side effects and was looking for a non-hormonal alternative. My husband and I are not trying to get pregnant anytime soon, but we're just not a fan of condoms and really wanted something that would work for us. When I use this product, I pair it with the contraceptive sponge just to be safe. I have used this alone a couple times and was still protected. I really like this product especially if use it together with other methods of protection! This is better than the morning after pill because that's how I became pregnant. That was my fault though, it was just too expensive and I'm so bad at taking pills on time. At least I know this way I have more control and instant protection whenever I need it.

Im going through some female problems and cant be on hormone birth control so I tried this.. the texture doesnt feel good during intercourse. It doesnt feel anywhere near natural, it feels thick and the friction is just off.. the substance is white/thick/creamy and doesnt look very sexy, looks more like you've got an infection. Hoping that itll at least serve its purpose in notetting me get pregnant but it's not at all an enjoyable product.

Great alternative to hormonal BC

4 out of 5 stars
alexisg96 - 2 years ago
I am giving 4 stars only because though this has prevented pregnancy it was causing me to have recurring UTI's. To pretty much solve this I started taking a cranberry supplement to help and it has done the trick I no longer get UTI's. This product can get messy especially since you can't wash it out for at least 6 hours after intercourse (main reason for the UTI's). I have been using this method along with pulling out and natural family planning since April of 2019 and have not become pregnant since (knock on wood) - Hormonal BC is just not for me so this is a great alternative. I recommend wearing a panty liner or just an old pair of panties that you don't care for to wear after using this.

Heather - 4 years ago, Verified purchaser
I love this product. I've been using it for 6+ years and have never had any issues. It's never made me sick and it absolutely works. As with many of these reviews state, panty liners are highly recommended after. And, make sure your partner does not attempt oral while using the product, for obvious reasons. It's easy, quick and does provide additional lubrication. Best product I've ever used!

This is quick, easy, and painless to use. It starts working instantly and gives you an hour window. Others have mentioned it being messy, but I have not found that to be a problem. If anything, it helps serve as a lubricant as well as spermicide. We have had no side effects from its use.

I really like this birth control option. It works well and you don't have to wait to be intimate. I also love the bonus lubrication of the product. I have noticed, however, that I tend to be slippery and leaky for hours after the deed has been done. I absolutely agree with others who say a panty liner is needed after using this product.
