Question
If I do use spermicide and then do protected sex with my girlfriend does she need to use douching after 6 hours? Or even use douching at all?

Answer
Hi Charles,

I can give you some general information about spermicides.  Application is usually done with the women lying on her back with the applicator inserted into the vagina.  Then the spermicide is injected via the applicator into the vagina.  You should wait maybe 10 minutes before intercourse.  You would need an application before each intercourse.  If you have sex 3 or 4 times in an evening you would need the same number of applications.  Spermicides do not prevent most sexually transmitted diseases.  Douching is not recommended for at least 6 to 8 hours.   Sperm could still be hanging around for several hours.  As with every thing  else there could be an allergic reaction to either or both of you.

Have a great day,
