Encare is easy, clean, fast, discreet, effective and much more intimate than using condoms, * if used correctly*. I believe many of the negative posts involved not inserting the product deep enough. It can have a very subtle, warm sensation at first, which is nice. I've never had any problems with lubrication, with this product or naturally, and any infection can only happen on very rare occasion if at all, with the 'come', NOT the product. I should say that first-timers should try it at least a few times or more, to really understand and get used to using it - deep! An excellent and easy form of reliable birth control. Me and my girl friends who also use it, simply love it !

To bad I read these reviews to late. I was nervous using this product because most lubes and Vaginal Contraceptive tend to burn me and sometime make me swell abit but Just like the instruction it was very easy to use ,not to uncomfortable and didnt burn me at all. I did become heavily lubed which does cause leakage during intercourse nothing a few towel couldnt fix. Also during intercorse my hubby did say it felt really warm but nothing to intense well until afterwards I showered and he went to pee when i heard him shout in pain..I felt so bad for him he was in soooo much pain for almost a hour afterwards..he was red and very infammed. I still cant believe he wasnt in tears. So maybe its an allergic reaction or something but we will not be using this product again for the sake of his member.

      Comments about Encare Vaginal Contraceptive Inserts, 12 ea:

      This is easier and less messy than foam and does not have side effects unlike other methods. If you watch your cycle and pay attention to when you ovulate then use a condom it will make it more effective. Although I have never done this and still never gotten pregnant when using this product. It is not dire for me to not have another baby though so I am not super concerned about it.

      This product works, my husband and I have been using these the 5 years we've been married and I haven't gotten pregnant once, very effective. It is messy, which is why I only gave it 4 stars, but you get used to it after you've been using it for so long, I'd rather have the messiness of it then having a kid.

      I hadn't used this product for years, but recently needed an effective non-hormonal contraceptive. It is just as I remember. Easy to use, but with messy results after the act. As it melts, the lubricating effects are *sometimes* helpful, but most times excessive. Leaves you with a mucous-like discharge even after showering. I suggest wearing a pantyliner the next day. And yes, it does cause a burning sensation to some people. The discomfort I felt the first use wasn't as intense the second time. They're not horrible.

        Comments about Encare Vaginal Contraceptive Inserts, 12 ea:

        Messy. Then afterward I went to pee and OMG! I have had UTI's before and this does not even compare, worst pain I have ever had while peeing. Then I went to bathe thinking it would help and even water burned! Will not be using again and probably will think twice before peeing for a couple of days! Ouch!!! I found someone's suggestion that it could be allergic reaction, going to try benadryl- I hope to God it helps! It doesn't make any sense that it would be an allergic reaction though as I never have had this happen with spermicide from a condom, I think this product just sucks!

            I've used this product for quite a few years, and it's a little messy as it dissolves, but what's the difference when you're have sex. Isn't that just as messy? After you insert it, it gives you time to mess around as you get ready for the fun ahead.

                  So, my bf and I used this 3 times. The first 2 times it was fine. Other than a little messy, we were able to enjoy the product until the third time. I felt it burning during the activity then afterwards went to the bathroom to pee and was in tears!!! My bf was trying to help me when his member began to burn too!!!!! Its been 15 mins and we are both extremely uncomfortable. It feels like a UTI but much much worse!

                  I've been using this product for several years. Yes, it is messy but I've never burned nor has my husband. And...I haven't gotten pregnant. Just shower good afterwards or use a pantyliner as it'll kinda ooze out for a bit afterwards. Feels kinda gross, but it works so I have no real complaints.

                  Encare Vaginal Contraceptive Inserts

                   – Finding a method of birth control that fits your lifestyle and that you can trust to be effective is important for taking control of your sexual wellness. Encare Vaginal Contraceptive Inserts are designed to provide you with a convenient, effective form of contraception that is simple to use correctly and that does not pose a risk for hormonal side effects.

                  Dual Protection for Your Contraceptive Needs



                  Encare Vaginal Contraceptive Inserts provide dual protection against unwanted pregnancy. Each insert contains 100 milligrams of Nonoxynol 9, the FDA-approved spermicide recommended most frequently by doctors. When sperm comes in contact with the inserts, it is killed, making it unable to reach and fertilize an egg. In addition, the insert helps to cover the cervix, serving as a barrier to sperm and further decreasing the likelihood of fertilization occurring.

                  A Simple to Use Birth Control Solution



                  During intimate moments, Encare Vaginal Contraceptive Inserts provide a convenient solution that is unlikely to spoil the mood or require you to plan for intercourse hours in advance. Simply unwrap an insert and place it into the vagina at least 10 minutes before penetration to get the full benefits of the product. One insert provides 1 full hour of protection, and you don't have to deal with messy gels, foams or creams. The inserts from Encare are fully compatible with male condoms and diaphragms and can be used with either form of birth control as a back-up or secondary form of contraception.

                  Four Decades of Experience in Pharmaceutical Science



                  Encare Vaginal Contraceptive Inserts are manufactured by Blairex Laboratories, an American pharmaceutical company that has been manufacturing health care products since 1976. All Blairex products are produced in accordance with high quality standards to ensure their effectiveness and safety. This provides peace of mind that the inserts work as intended when used correctly.
