Comment:
Before my Fiancee and I used this neither one of us have had sex without a condom so it was a difference experience for both of us. The one thing though that was over read was the wait 15min thing. Now my meatus is burning when i pee. The first few times we did wait a bit but that was pure luck that we did. So make sure you wait cause it hurts bad.

I have used the films for about a year now and have had no pregnancy scares or physiological side effects. Having to wait 15-minuets is a negative but overall they have worked for be as I am unable to use the pill or hormonal birth control.

Comment:
I use this stuff with my husband who before we got married. It was a pain sometimes to wait the 15minutes before you could have sex but if your creative you can find ways to pass that time. It was very effective in not getting me pregnant & had no other problems health wise or anything. I was very happy with it.

Comment:
during intercourse following the directed application of this product, I experienced: abdominal, rectal, and vaginal inflammation/irritation/burning that were very intense (rating it 7 out of 10 on a pain scale). It felt like my insides had been lacerated and I expected to see blood at amy moment.
