The contraceptive sponge is designed to fit over the cervix to prevent pregnancy. It blocks the cervix, preventing semen from entering the uterus. Also this sponge contains spermicide that kills sperm and sponge absorbs the semen.

Side effects? The contraceptive sponge has been coupled with some women encountering toxic shock syndrome (TSS). Quite rarebut considered serious life-threatening bacterial infection.If using the sponge, this should not be staying inside the vagina for more than 30 hours and the sponge should not be used during menstruation or if you have a history of TSS.

What is good with contraceptive sponge is that it is easy to use and effective immediately. Aside from that it is inexpensive and does not require medical exam or prescription. Plus it is reversible, economical isn’t it. But the bad thing is that it does not protect you from STDs and the side effects are very rare.

The sponge is not advisable to use if you are allergic to polyurethane and spermicide, and if you also have reproductive tract infection. best if you visit your healtcare provider before using contraceptive sponge for your safety.
