More About Contraceptive Suppository Capsule
The contraceptive suppository capsule is a barrier method that is completely reversible and available over the counter. Each suppository has a limited window of effectiveness - they are not long term birth control. Contraceptive suppository capsules do not prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections and are best paired with condoms.
