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:

    I've used this for many years, and I've never gotten pregnant unless I wanted to, so it must be effective. It doesn't bother our skin, but I've heard others say it does a little bit, so that must depend on the person. It's easy to use spontaneously, other than you have to wait 10 minutes. No hormones, and you can stop using it when you're not needing it (my husband deploys w/ the military sometimes, and it has no side effect like the pill does when you stop & start. I wouldn't use anything else, personally. And it's affordable.

        Leaves an uncomfortably hot feeling inside, takes forever to disolve,burns your guy, leaks out for TWO DAYS after. Used once and threw the rest away. I cannot imagine a worse experience.

          Comments about Encare Vaginal Contraceptive Inserts, 12 ea:

          I personally love this. It functions as a lubricant as well and the sensation is not that unpleasant for me - I actually enjoy it, but I do have to give it a good 40 minutes to 1 hour to fully dissolve. My partner did complain of a stinging sensation after however, and he did say that urinating was torturous until it wore off the next day.
          I expect this would come in handy if you want to get back at an ex or as payback to an unfaithful boyfriend.

            After years of being on hormone birth control pills, which began to throw my hormone levels off the charts. I needed BC w/out hormones yet effective...so far, so good and even better the extra moisture this product adds makes sex even better.

                Product not effective. I used 4 suppositories and on the 5th one I became pregnant. I'm 34 with a 13 year old and an 8 year old. I don't know if the previous 4 even worked or if I just wasn't fertile at the time! Now I'm 6 weeks pregnant. Yes as the other reviews read they are kinda messy giving off a warming senstation; however, I didn't experience burning and neither did my partner.

                    I read the other reviews about how the burning might be an allergic reaction and I want to tell people that I don't think it is. The first 6 or so times my boyfriend and I used this product, it was great. We both liked the warming sensation and neither of us felt any discomfort. Then, one day it started to really burn him and he was in so much pain for about 10 minutes. I felt so bad. It was fine all the other times so it couldn't have been an allergy. We figured it must've just been pushed too far up his urethra that time, who knows. To be on the safe side a condom should be used with it. So there's some risk involved but other than that, it's a pretty good product.

                    The package insert said to expect a "warming sensation". It started burning us both so badly that we had to stop and I was on the verge of tears until it finally wore off. It's very effective! Kills everything including the mood.

NEVER GOT IRRITATED OR ITCHY. SO FAR SO GOOD. WILL CONTINUE USING IT. LADIES, BE SMART AND HAVE THE MAILE WEAR A CONDOM. AS I DID, I BELIEVE THE RESULTS WILL BE BETTER ON PREVENTION.

                      My husband and I have used this a few times now, we both hate condoms so it seemed like an awesome alternative, and it was the first few times even though it was a bit messy, still better... until this morning... we both started feeling uncomfortable during, and after when we went to pee, FIRE. I have had a few UTIs and this is by far the worst, if thats what it is.I just hope this doesn't last for too long. We will never ever again use this product!

                      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.
