What Is Spermicide? Spermicide is a chemical that prevents pregnancy by killing sperm so they can’t fertilize an egg. The only spermicide available in the U.S. is nonoxynol-9 (N-9). Spermicide is a kind of birth control that has chemicals that stop sperm from reaching an egg.

You put it in your vagina before sex to prevent pregnancy. Spermicide is an agent that kills spermatozoa (sperm). Spermicide causes the sperm cell membrane to rupture, so the sperm is unable to fertilize the egg.

Creams, jellies, foams etc., containing chemical spermicides are used as contraceptives. Spermicide is a chemical product that comes in the form of a jelly, foam, or cream and is a barrier method of birth control.It’s spermicidal chemicals are designed to kill the sperm before they reach the uterus. How effective is spermicide? Spermicidal chemicals alone.

Vaginal spermicides, when used alone, are much less effective in preventing pregnancy than birth control pills, an intrauterine device (IUD), or spermicides used together with another form of birth control, such as cervical caps, condoms, or diaphragms. It’s really important to use spermicide correctly — every time you have sex. It’s much better at preventing pregnancy when combined with other methods like condoms. Like all birth control methods, spermicide is most effective when you use it correctly every single time you have vaginal sex. Be.

Here are the six types of spermicides currently on the market and how to use them. Verywell / Jessica Olah Spermicidal Foam. Contraceptive foam comes in an aerosol can, with an applicator, and is the same consistency of mousse hair-styling products. After shaking the can for at least 30 seconds, press the tip of the applicator on the nozzle of. There’s no evidence that spermicides cause birth defects.

And spermicide condoms are an effective form of birth control, but they do not have any benefit over condoms without spermicide. If you get irritated using spermicide, you’re probably allergic to it. Unfortunately, all spermicides and contraceptive gels sold in the United States contain the same active ingredient, Nonoxynol-9. If you’re allergic to that, this method (and condoms with spermicidal lubricant) won’t work for you. You’re confident you’re both HIV-free.

Spermicides designed to immobilize and kill sperm before pregnancy can occur. They can be used as birth control on their own or in combination.

  • Bonjour de France.
    Bonne vidéo vous expliquez très bien.
    J.ai une question à vous poser: je n ai pas le droit de prendre la pilule (opéré de l.estomac type bypass), le stérilet euuuh je ne veux pas qu on me touche à ct endroit la (j ai subit des viols penetrations digitales…), et l.implant contraceptif beaucoup de gynecologues ne veulent pas le mettre… et le prèservatif j.y suis alergique même ceux sans latex. Quel est le taux d.efficacité pour les gel, mousse ou supositoire vaginal? Lequel est le plus efficace? J.ai très peu de relation sexuelle.
    Merci d.avance pour votre réponse.
    Bien à vous.

  • Merci beaucoup pour cette présentation! C’est vraiment très instructif! Ça répond a énormément de questions, et puis d’une certaine façon ça rassure les jeunes femmes qui sont devant ces multitudes de méthodes contraceptives!
    C’est très limpide, on comprend tout de suite et puis vous êtes toute les deux vraiment très sympathique!
    Très bonne continuation et en attente de nouvelles vidéos! =)

  • While I understand your stance on preventing an unwanted/unplanned pregnancy you also owe it to your viewers to provide them with as much information on the subject as possible so that they can make a completely responsible informed decision.

  • May be this may be that… Don’t know what all the negativity with spermicide is, if ur with someone for a long ass time ur eventually gunna start going at it without a condom, this is reality.  If she is on the pill added with spermicide, ur percentages are good, also if they guy does not ejaculate inside of her. So those percentages are only accounting for full ejaculation, not just precum.

  • Hollidaychild what you’re saying about N9 is correct, however not all spermicide contains N9. Further, if you and your partner have been tested for HIV and are not positive, there’s no reason to be concerned about getting infected. It’s only if one partner has HIV that the potential for infection increases by using N9.

  • Once you put the VCF in the vagina you have to wait 15 minuets before intercourse. After 15 minuets the VCF creates lubrication so that’s why it probably looks like yogurt. To be honest I think she was just creaming dawg. ����������‍♀️ I’m not saying you wrong but yeah

  • As a educator you should mention that Spermicides contain Nonoxynol-9:

    It was originally thought that N9 could be used for the prevention of STD’s/STI’s however about 10 years ago it was discovered that it actually INCREASES the chances of contracting infections like HIV by creating lesions on the layers of skin cells in the vagina or rectum walls, which can potentially facilitate infection.
