Stacy Wiegman, PharmD, Pharmacy, answeredWhen correctly used alone, spermicides such as VCF Vaginal Contraceptive Film are about 85 percent effective at preventing pregnancy over the course of one year. Use of a second type of birth control, such as a condom, will increase effectiveness. If you have been advised to avoid pregnancy due to a serious medical condition, VCF may not be a good birth control choice for you. Be sure to discuss birth control options with your doctor.
