What is the Protectaid Sponge?

The Protectaid sponge is made of polyurethane foam and comes in one size. It provides protection for a 12 hour period; a new sponge is not required if multiple acts of intercourse occur during the 12-hour timeframe. The sponge acts as a physical barrier, blocking and absorbing semen and preventing sperm from entering the uterus. Additionally, since the sponge contains several spermicides, it also functions as a chemical barrier method. Studies of Protectaid have found effectiveness rates of 77% to 91%.

How to use the Protectaid sponge

Insertion of the sponge requires reaching the cervix and is generally performed by the woman. Intercourse can proceed when it is placed or hours afterward. The sponge must be left in place for several hours after ejaculation in the vagina (6 hours is recommended.) It must be removed within 18 hours of use.

Side effects

  • Yeast infection
  • Allergic reaction to the spermicide
  • Toxic shock syndrome (if left in too long)

The Protectaid sponge will not prevent sexually transmitted diseases.
