pHIRST IN CLASS!1
A NON-HORMONAL CONTRACEPTIVE THAT MAINTAINS VAGINAL pH TO PREVENT PREGNANCY2

HOW IT WORKS

By maintaining the vagina's acidic pH level, which creates an inhospitable environment for sperm3-5

 

By creating a bioadhesive, viscous layer of gel over the vaginal and cervical surfaces, which allows Phexxi to remain in place and maintain an acidic environment within the vagina3‑5
