Does the Vaginal contraceptive Film work?

My boyfriend and I were looking at it at the store tonight and wondered if that'd be better for us than me taking the Pill...

My last round was making me very sick..

Thanks,
Beca

Talk to the doctor who prescribed you the pill: it may or may not be your pill making you sick, or it may be a different sort will work better if so, if hormonal contraception is what you want to use.

Spermicides by themselves are not very effective.

There are, however, other effective options if hormonal contraception isn't working for you: condoms, diaphragms, cervical caps, etc.
