What is vaginal contraceptive film?

ANSWER

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.
