WHAT IS IT?
The VCF® is a modern contraceptive that kills sperm upon contact when it’s inside the vagina. It’s a soft square of thin, soluble film that’s inserted in the vagina and dissolves with the body’s natural moisture. This contraceptive comes in individually sealed pouches that are roughly half the size of an one peso bill.
WHY DO YOU NEED IT?
It’s a prescription-free birth control method that provides up to 94% effective results with correct and consistent use. When used as a backup to another birth control method, the VCF® is 99% effective. Unlike condoms, it cannot be felt by either partner for maximum pleasure.
- Kills sperm upon contact for up to three hours
- Hormone-free, non- toxic, and FDA approved
- No prescription needed
- Dissolves right after you insert it and stays active for up to three hours
- It washes away with the natural body fluids so there’s nothing to remove or dispose of afterward
STEP 1: Wash your hands and make sure that your fingers are clean and dry.
STEP 2: Carefully remove the square of pre-folded film from the conveniently sealed pouch.
STEP 3: Fold VCF® between your fingertips. You can use your second or third finger.
STEP 4: Get into a comfortable position to insert the VCF®. Try to sit on the edge of the bed, toilet, or bathtub and then put your leg up. You may also want to squat, put a foot up on a chair, or lie on your back.
STEP 5: With one swift movement, place the VCF® deep in your vagina. It must be against your cervix. Do it fast so it won’t stick to your fingers.
STEP 6: Wait for at least 15 minutes before intercourse. It stays active for up to 3 hours.
- It does not protect against HIV and STIs. Use it with another barrier contraceptive such as condoms to protect yourself.
- One film should be used for each act of intercourse.
- You can fold the film in half again to make the film smaller.
- The VCF® must be stored at room temperature.
