Phexxi is the first non-hormonal, on-demand, vaginal pH regulator contraceptive designed to maintain vaginal pH within the normal range of 3.5 to 4.5 – an acidic environment that is inhospitable to sperm.
The active ingredients found in Phexxi are lactic acid, citric acid and potassium bitartrate. It is available as vaginal gel.
It is indicated for the prevention of pregnancy in females of reproductive potential for use as an on-demand method of contraception. Phexxi is not effective for the prevention of pregnancy when administered after intercourse.
Avoid use of Phexxi in females of reproductive potential with history of recurrent urinary tract infection or urinary tract abnormalities.
Vulvovaginal burning sensation, vulvovaginal pruritus, vulvovaginal mycotic infection, urinary tract infection, vulvovaginal discomfort, bacterial vaginosis, vaginal discharge, genital discomfort, dysuria, and vulvovaginal pain are commonly reported side effects of Phexxi.
