  • If you are trying not to get pregnant than I would use something more effective.
    If it doesn't matter if you get pregnant again then keep using it.

  • I think its very effective as long as it is used consistantly..every time you have sex. Sometimes in the heat of a moment and after a few coctails..some may forget,lol.
