HOW DOES PHEXXI WORK?

 

Vaginas have pH levels that can range from 3.5 to 4.5.

page-about-phexxi-flow1

When semen (sperm) enters the vagina, it raises the vagina's pH level, which allows sperm to be mobile and swim up the reproductive canal.

page-about-phexxi-flow2

Phexxi works to keep vaginal pH in the range of 3.5 to 4.5, which lowers sperm mobility, lowering the chance of sperm reaching the egg.

Phexxi is designed to stay in place in the vagina during intercourse.

FAQs

No, Phexxi is not a spermicide. Phexxi is a combination of 3 active ingredients: lactic acid, citric acid, and potassium bitartrate.

Because Phexxi is used only when you need it, you may begin using Phexxi during any part of your menstrual cycle. You may also use Phexxi as soon as it is safe to resume vaginal intercourse after childbirth, abortion, or miscarriage.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

If you have had a history of urinary tract infections that keep coming back or other urinary tract problems, you should not use Phexxi.

The most common side effects were vaginal burning & itching, yeast infection, urinary tract infection, vaginal area discomfort, bacterial vaginosis, vaginal discharge, genital discomfort (including in male partners) and pain while urinating.

Phexxi does not protect against any sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. Avoid using Phexxi with a vaginal ring.

Contact your healthcare provider if you are experiencing severe genital irritation or discomfort or urinary tract symptoms. Avoid Phexxi if you or your sexual partner is allergic to lactic acid, citric acid, potassium bitartrate, or any of the ingredients in Phexxi. Stop using Phexxi if you develop an allergic reaction.
