Is there anything I can do if spermicide is irritating me?
updated about 5 years ago

The irritation might be because of the brand of spermicide you’re using, so you might want to try out another kind.

Still not working?

If you’re allergic to Nonoxynol-9 (the main ingredient in all spermicides/contraceptive gels sold in the United States), you may need to check out another method. If you prefer something without hormones, condoms, female condoms, and the copper IUD could all be good options.

Try a different method
