The Sponge

What is the Sponge?
A polyurethane disk with spermicide which is inserted into the Vagina before sex.

The sponge is a delivery method for spermicide which has been proven to be effective, but requires that it stay in place for at least 6 hours after having sex but not more than 30 hours.

The device will provide protection for up to 24 hours and you do not need to use additional spermicide each time you have sex.

The Sponge is available over the counter and you do not need a prescription.

If you are prone to irritation from spermicide, then the extended period of time that is required for it to remain in place could worsen the irritation.
