  • sure it works. All BC is only working at its best effectiveness if you use it as ordered/perscriced/directions. Encare or Semicid or any of the spermicidals can be highly effective. Have you ever used any BC with Nonxyinol-9 in them? Some women are allergic to it. It is the main spermicidal in this product. If you have any doubts follow the insert directions to test for allergy. Usually on your inner arm near the elbow. Follow the directions and you're good to go.

  • TMI answer of the day. I did get pregnant on it, but it was after yrs of that being my only birth control, and when you use them you begin to feel a bit drippy (lol sorry). A slight burning can occure as well. They work best with condoms or diaphram.
