The First and Only Hormone-Free, On-Demand Prescription Contraceptive Vaginal Gel
Phexxi® (lactic acid, citric acid and potassium bitartrate) vaginal gel provides women an in-the-moment contraceptive that can be easily applied 0-60 minutes before each act of intercourse and works by maintaining the baseline vaginal pH environment.
Baseline vaginal pH levels can range from 3.5 to 4.5. When semen enters the vagina it raises the vagina’s pH level, which allows sperm to be mobile and swim up the reproductive canal. Phexxi works to keep vaginal pH in the baseline range of 3.5 to 4.5, which lowers sperm mobility, lowering the chance of sperm reaching the egg.
Women should not have to rely on a daily ritual, their partner, an invasive procedure, or an injection from their physician to protect themselves from unwanted pregnancy. Many women seek a safe, FDA-approved localized method of birth control that does not require the introduction of hormones into their bodies.
Because Phexxi is a non-hormonal birth control, it is not associated with side effects like depression, mood swings and irritability. 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.
Phexxi provides a hormone-free contraceptive option for women who cannot or do not want to use a hormonal contraceptive as their birth control method. Phexxi is the hormone-free birth control women have been waiting for.

What the Experts Say
“During my 15-year career at the FDA, I participated in the review and approval of many sexual and reproductive health products, and I believe that Phexxi serves a true unmet need in contraception. Phexxi offers women protection and control—on their terms, and at their discretion—without the use of hormones.”
Lisa Rarick, M.D., FACOG
Former FDA Division Director
Director, Evofem Biosciences
“There have been a limited number of advances in birth control over the last two decades; Phexxi represents an important step forward in women’s health. Many of my patients have cycled through numerous contraceptive options and still have not found the right fit for their sexual and reproductive needs. Phexxi offers women freedom from hormones and control over how they choose to prevent pregnancy. I look forward to offering this new on-demand option to my patients.”
