Has anyone used VCF vaginal contraceptive films?

I really need advice on contraceptives!! I gave birth to my son almost three months ago. So obviously my partner and I have switched to always using condoms. But when I went to the store, I found VCF vaginal contraceptive films and was wondering if any other mommas have used it and what were your experiences? Is it as effective as a condom? We’re scared to use the films loo.

Ive used them a few times. No pregnancy here.

I started using them in May. Now I’m 14 weeks pregnant. Didn’t work for me. :persevere:

Its ment to be used with condoms, diaphragm, cap ect not on it’s own as it’s not that effective but is good for a back up method

I’ve used it. I’m not fond of it.

I used them for a bout 2 years then got prego with my 2nd… Make sure you are always always within the time limit they say.

I’m honestly terrified to venture out contraceptive wise . I’ve found condoms just work best in my opinion.

They’re supposed to be used in conjunction with condoms for most efficacy from what I understand.

I’ve used them. You have to follow directions to the letter, they’re not always effective, and for me they also contributed to utis (at least that was my doctors theory)

I’ve used them and never gotten pregnant. Actually Ive used nothing for 14 years and never gotten pregnant again. I don’t know if its just me

I’ve used them but I’m not a huge fan. It’s just spermicide, so if you want to go that route, I’d just get a spermicide and not deal with the film.

I got bad yeast infections with them so after two times i quit using them.

Used vcf for a few years but then it didn’t work for me one time. She is 15 now. :blush:

I used this for years before getting my tubes tied because I didn’t want to take hormones. Easy to use. Comes in a plastic tampon type applicator

Used a few times years ago and (now) husband said they made his pee hole burn :grimacing::eggplant::fire: but no pregnancies! Would NOT use all the time and your main method! Every 9nce in a while will probably be okay.

I got pregnant on it
