How Does a Vaginal Contraceptive Film Work?
Vaginal Contraceptive Film (VCF) is a thin square of material that dissolves quickly when it comes in contact with vaginal fluids. It has a pregnancy prevention rate of about 71 percent, according to the Mayo Clinic. The VCF should be put into place between 15 minutes and one hour before sexual activity. After three hours have passed, VCF is no longer effective. The gel will have dissolved and left the body.
