Product Description

Two kinds of efficacy statistics are customarily calculated for contraceptive methods. "Method-effectiveness" is the level of effectiveness obtained when using a method consistently, according to label instructions. The method-effectiveness for Today® Sponge, which was derived from a controlled worldwide clinical study, is 89% to 91% (see Today® Sponge product labeling). What that actually means is about one pregnancy for every 1,250 to 1,500 acts of intercourse Today® Sponge does not contain hormones. The active ingredient, the spermicide, nonoxynol-9, has been available for more than 35 years, has been used by millions of women, and has a proven safety record Because Today® Sponge is made of soft polyurethane foam that mimics the feel of vaginal tissue, it is extremely comfortable and generally undetected by either partner during intercourse.    After years of clinical testing among more than 1,800 women worldwide who used Today® Sponge throughout more than 12,000 Menstrual Cycles, Today Sponge Was Introduced To The U.S. Market In April 1983. Studied In 20 Family Planning Centers In 11 Countries, It Has Undergone More Extensive Testing Prior To Introduction Than Any Other Female OTC Contraceptive. Updated World Wide Clinical Trial Results Continue To Confirm The Data Supporting The Labeling Of Today Sponge, Which Made It The Female OTC Contraceptive Method Most Recommended By Physicans. Today® Sponge is sold over-the-counter, without a physicians' prescription. No special fitting is required. Its small size allows a woman to carry it unobtrusively in her purse. In addition, it is disposable after each use. And, unlike the pill, Today® Sponge is used only when needed. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to products on Amazon and the Amazon logo are trademarks of, Inc, or its affiliates.
