Contraceptive foam, also known as spermicide, is one of medicine's lesser-known forms of birth control. If you're unhappy with your current birth control for some reason, you might want to check it out. Contraceptive foam was more popular in the 70s, but you can still buy it today.
- Contraceptive foam works by killing sperm. That is why it is called spermicide. You can prevent your girl from becoming pregnant by massacring all of your tadpoles.
- You don't need a prescription for contraceptive foam. That is one of the greatest things about contraceptive foam. You can just pick it up at your local drug store and you don't need to see a doctor. This will save you money and spare your girl from having to submit to a gynecological exam if she doesn't want to.
- Contraceptive foam goes inside your girlfriend's vagina. You don't spread it all over your penis, it goes inside of her.
- Contraceptive foam is usually used in conjugation with another birth control method. Most people who use contraceptive foam also use a cervical cap or condoms. It's good for people who are using less-reliable forms of birth control or people who are especially paranoid about pregnancy.
- Some people don't like contraceptive foam. The chemical in contraceptive foam, nonoxynol-9, irritates a lot of people and some are even allergic to it. Contraceptive foam can also be very messy and it smells. It definitely makes oral sex off-limits.
- Contraceptive foam does not prevent the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases. Use a condom if you aren't in a monogamous relationship.
