Is Contragel a Spermicide? No, spermicides kill sperm on contact. One of the properties of a contraceptive gel is that it's a gel, a sticky substance which sperm simply can not travel through. It's a barrier that captures and retains the sperm. A diaphragm or cervical cap can not form an absolute seal on their own so a gel substance is needed to complete the physical barrier. For this reason the chemical content of the barrier is not so important. ContraGel however does use a base of lactic acid, the same acid found in a lemons. The pH value of lemon is very low and this reduces the pH in the vaginal cavity and the sperm, which inhibits their activity and causes them to die.
Can Contragel cause irritation? Every person is different and our bodies will each react differently. There is a slight possibility that a user will experience an adverse reaction to ContraGel's natural ingredients the same way someone can have an allergic reaction to any food. What medical studies do show us is that spermicides containing Nonoxynol 9 cause a high rate of reactions in users. If you are sensitive and concerned you might, we suggest before using ContraGel for the first time, we recommend applying a small amount to the skin as a test to see if you have an adverse reaction. If you have a special skin condition discuss it with your dermatologist before using ContraGel. Also, remember, your partner's skin will come in contact with the gel so make sure you tell him you're using it in case he would like to test it on his skin as well.
