What is VCF?
A very thin square piece of material that dissolves quickly and releases its active ingredient nonoxynol-9, a powerful non-hormonal spermicide that kills sperm on contact.

If you use VCF, neither you nor your partner will be able to tell it's there. This means that you can enjoy sex with the knowledge that you are protected. There are no bulky inserts that you have to leave in, no applicators to either insert or clean off and since VCF doesn't contain a lot of inactive ingredients like foams or gels, it isn't runny or messy.

With all spermicides or hormonal products, VCF will not prevent STI's so if you have multiple partners or are not in a committed relationship we recommend abstinence or a condom.

Proper use of VCF:
1. Remove the square of film from the sealed pouch and fold it in half.
2. Make sure your fingers are dry, fold again and place on your second or third finger.
3. With one swift movement place it high in your vagina against the cervix, not less than 15 minutes and not more than 3 hours before intercourse. One film should be used for each act of intercourse. It is important that you follow the instructions carefully otherwise, as with any contraceptive, reliability cannot be assured.

VCF causes vaginal or penile irritation on rare occasion. If discomfort does occur at a time when you are using VCF, discontinue use. Should the irritation persist, consult your doctor.
