Newest Non-Hormonal Prescription Contraceptive

Women’s Heath Practice was proud to participate in the Ampower study that helped bring Phexxi to market. We also would like to thank those women who participated in the study.

Phexxi is a vaginal gel made up of lactie acid, citric acid and potassium bitartrate.

The vaginal get is formulated as a bioahesive that coats the lining of the vagina and the outer portion of the cervix to maintain a very acid pH that is inhospitable to sperm.

It can be applied right before intercourse and begins working immediately.

It is not for women who have had chronic UTI problems.

Women do extremely well on this product, but may have reactions in a few cases. Most common adverse reactions were vaginal burning sensation, vaginal itching or discomfort, BV, vaginal discharge, UTI, or vulvovaginal pain.

Phexxi can be used with most forms of contraception, but not indicated for women using the vaginal contraceptive ring.

There is no evidence that this should worsen or be contraindicated in women with HPV or STDs.

Make an appointment to determine if this medication is right for you.

This product will be available in the US in September 2020.
