WHAT IS VCF®?
VCF® - Vaginal Contraceptive Film is a soft square of soluble film that dissolves with moisture, which combines a highly effective and safe product that kills sperm on contact.
What does VCF® look like?
VCF is made of a soluble, which basically means it dissolves when it comes in contact with bodily fluids inside the vagina.
What is a spermicide?
The spermicide in VCF is the active ingredient Nonoxynol-9, a widely used highly effective spermicide that kills sperm on contact. It is a potent ingredient that is used by millions of women and is recommended by doctors around the world.
VCF® works by
manually inserting VCF high into the vagina and begins to dissolve immediately in the normal vaginal fluids. Once dissolved it creates a gel coating which contains a highly efficient spermicide that kills sperm on contact for up to 3 hours. Insertion is quite easy and can be accomplished by either the woman or her partner. Once VCF dissolves it becomes unnoticeable by either partner and allows for lovemaking to be uninterrupted because VCF is undetectable.
Because VCF® becomes a gel it doesn’t become runny or messy. It won’t stain. VCF washes away with the with the natural body fluids, there’s nothing to remove or dispose of.
