ContraGel: How It Works
ContraGel is a lactic acid based spermicide alternative that works in two ways. First, it reduces the PH levels in the vagina making it inhospitable to sperm. Second, it's viscous consistency traps sperm to prevent it from swimming past any openings around the barrier contraceptive. You are therefore protected on two fronts, significantly increasing the reliability of your barrier contraceptive.
Contragel effectivity and safety is well established. It was first manufactured by the NVSH in holland from 1972 until 2003 under the name Contracep Green. The product was bought back into production through consumer demand by german based DeltaMed GmbH, under the name ContraGel Green.
ContraGel is water soluble and safe to use with silicone rubber diaphragms and cervical caps as well as latex, latex or polyurethane condoms.

The Dangers of Nonoxonol-9
You've decided t to ditch the pill and choose a more natural contraceptive, either a diaphragm or a FemCap. But when you walk into a pharmacy and pick up a tube of spermicide, do you know what chemicals you are exposing yourself to?
Almost all spermicides contain nonoxynol-9, a highly toxic chemical surfactant often found in detergents. When N-9 is doing it's job right, it is breaking down the cells of sperm, making them totally impotent.
But it's breaking down more then just sperm cells. It also breaks down the cells of the vagina wall and the penis leading to irritation. Even more, N-9 also kills beneficial bacteria and skin cells, disrupting the vaginal flora and leaving you susceptible to yeast infections and urinary tract infections.
Besides the common rashes and itchiness reported by both men and women after using spermicide, we know that what we put on our bodies is just as important as what we put in it. The delicate skin in our vagina readily absorbs whatever we put on it, so that nonoxynol-9 directly enters our blood stream, spreading toxins throughout our entire body.
STDs And The Abrasive Nature of N-9
N-9's ability to kill microbes in-vitro was initially taken as evidence that it might be effective at preventing STD transmission. However, more recent findings indicate that it may actually increase a person's risk of contracting STDs, especially if used frequently.
This is because the chemical causes tiny abrasions inside the sensitive vaginal and anal walls.
From 1996 to 2000, a UN-sponsored study carried out in several locations in Africa followed nearly 1000 sex workers who used nonoxynol-9 gels or a placebo. The HIV infection rate among those using nonoxynol-9 was about 50% higher than those who used the placebo; those using nonoxynol-9 also had a higher incidence of vaginal lesions, which may have contributed to this increased risk.
Regular use of nonoxynol-9 also appears also to increase the risk of infection with sexually transmitted human papillomaviruses (HPVs) that can cause cervical cancer.
Barrier Contraception And The Fertility Window
The goal of barrier contraception is to prevent perm from reaching and fertilizing an egg — but fertilization is biologically impossible unless a viable egg is present
Natural Family Planning (NFP) and the Fertility Awareness Method (FAM) identify ovulation, nullifying the need for contraceptives most of the month. Sperm can live inside the womb for up to 5 days, and ovulation releases an egg which is able to be fertilized for one day. That six day span is referred to as the fertility window, and is the only time there is actually a real need for a barrier device.
Cyclotest uses Sympto-Thermal fertility charting to identify that fertility window. Ovulation causes a spike in Basal body temperature (BBT), so by recording that data every morning, you can see when you have ovulated.
With 99% reliability, why not let Cyclotest make your contraceptive decisions for you?
