Vaginal contraceptive film is a paper-thin film that has a spermicide in it. A woman can place it in her vagina on or near the cervix (the entrance to the uterus), where the film dissolves in seconds. The spermicide in it works for about an hour.
You should wait at least 15 minutes after inserting the film before having sex. And you must use a new film each time you have intercourse.
In the beginning, there was Seasonale -- the continuous birth control pill that offered women four periods a year. Women grabbed the chance to opt out of their periods. If you don't need it, why put up with it?
Today, "the pill" has been finessed even more, with lighter-period or no-period birth control pills as well as no-PMS, no-acne pills. Seasonale, Seasonique, Yaz, Beyaz, Yasmin, and Lybrel have changed the face of birth control pills.
All are variations of traditional birth control pills...
