How it works

From Phexxi's website

When semen enters the vagina, it raises the vagina’s pH levels. This allows sperm to swim to the egg, causing pregnancy.

Phexxi maintains a normal vaginal pH and works to keep vaginal pH low to stop the sperm from swimming to the egg.

How to use

Phexxi is used immediately before, or up to 1 hour before each act of sex. Insert the pre-filled applicator into your vagina, push the plunger rod to release the gel, and voila!

Cooper IUD (Paraguard)

IUDs, or intrauterine devices, are long-lasting birth control implants.
99% effective in pregnancy prevention with typical use
Discrete; not visible to your partner
Lasts 10-12 years

How it works

The only active ingredient in a copper IUD is, you guessed it, copper. Copper stops sperm in its tracks so it can't reach the egg. No fertilization = no pregnancy.

How to use

You'll need to go to a clinic to have any IUD inserted, and then again when you decide to have it removed. Learn how to get birth control.
