What do I do if the sponge keeps falling out?

The sponge keeps falling out.

Try this: Check to see if you’ve got the sponge inserted deep enough, up against your cervix. (That’s the number one reason for it falling out.)

Still not working?

If you’re still having trouble, and you’re committed to using a barrier method, you may want to switch to male condoms, female condoms or a diaphragm.

Or, if you’d like to try something you won’t have to insert or use every time you have sex, check out the IUD, the shot, the implant, the patch, or the pill.
