Is there anything I can do to stop the irritation I'm experiencing from the sponge?
updated over 3 years ago

The irritation is likely from the spermicide—and since there’s no way to separate the two, you’re probably out of luck.

Still not working?

Think about trying a method that doesn’t require any spermicide.

If you want to keep using a barrier method, consider using male condoms or female condoms.

You might also consider using a method you don’t have to think about each time you have sex, like an IUD, the shot, the implant, the ring, the patch, or the pill.

Try a different method
