How effective is vaginal contraceptive film?

ANSWER

As long as you use the film consistently -- and the right way -- it’s 74%-94% effective. That means that out of 100 women who rely on it alone, six to 26 will get pregnant in a typical year.

If the man also wears a condom, that helps prevent pregnancy. Together, spermicides (like that in the film) and condoms are about 97% effective.
