Birth Control Spermicides

Birth Control Spermicides Introduction

Spermicides are chemical barriers to conception. They are a reversible method of birth control, meaning that when a woman quits using them, full fertility returns. Vaginal spermicides are available in forms such as foam, cream, jelly, film, suppository, or tablet. Spermicides are not as effective as many other forms of birth control when used alone. They are often used with barrier methods of birth control and are much more effective when used in this context.
