A Paradigm Shift in Contraception
23M+ women in the U.S. are not using a hormonal contraceptive.2
As the organic movement grows, society is trending in favor of more natural products and solutions. Women’s healthcare is no different. Many women are now opting for a non-hormonal, localized method of birth control.
Because Phexxi is a non-hormonal birth control, it is not associated with side effects like depression, mood swings and irritability. With Phexxi, women do not need to choose between their quality of life or contraception.
Taking hormones may not be right for some women especially for those with certain medical conditions including clotting disorders and most cancers, limiting their birth control options. There are approximately 800,000 new cases of cancer reported annually among women.3 Phexxi uniquely offers hormone-free, non-invasive prescription contraception.
