VCF® - Vaginal Contraceptive Film® is a soft square of soluble film that begins to dissolve with moisture after it is inserted. 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 a highly effective 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. 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, so there is nothing to remove or dispose of.
VCF® is a 2” square that looks similar to a breath freshening strip. It’s soluble which means it dissolves when it comes in contact with bodily fluids inside the vagina.
The spermicide in VCF® is the active ingredient Nonoxynol-9, an FDA approved, 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.
Because VCF® is small, no one except you needs to know you're using it. Once inserted VCF stays active for up to 3 hours and most women and their partners will not notice it’s there. VCF washes away with the natural body fluids so there’s nothing to remove or dispose of afterwards.
If you desire a spontaneous, unrestricted and natural way of lovemaking and don’t want to run the risks associated with a hormonal contraceptive, then VCF may be an excellent alternative!
