    DO NOT USE!! While being an effective contraceptive, the product somewhat burns during sex, and after causes EXCRUCIATING pain when urinating, very similar to a UTI. I will not continue the use of this product.

    I can no longer use hormonal bc. My husband and I have used encare for 2 years. Sometimes, he complains of burning while peeing afterwards. He tries to just go before hand. No issues. No pregnancy scares. We love it!

    Wasn't sure how to rate effectiveness, so was fair and gave a 3. Reason for this and the NS rating on "Satisfaction" was because it left me almost numb. I could feel, but VERY UNUSUALLY could NOT orgasm with Clitoral stimuli. I WAS able to achieve VERY UNUSUALLY, lol, Vaginal Orgasm via "G spot" but not as enjoyable.

    I swear by this product. Best if used as directed but I notice that using this product right after intercourse proves to be equally effective. This way has avoided discomfort by my husband.
