HOW DOES PHEXXI WORK?
Vaginas have pH levels that can range from 3.5 to 4.5.
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.
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.
When to use Phexxi is simple to remember:
A revolution in birth control.
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.
