With typical use, 14 women in 100 will become pregnant in one year. With perfect use, three women in 100 will become pregnant in one year.

It provides good protection against most STDs, including HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Plus, it’s cheap, easy to carry around, and can be bought at any drugstore without a prescription.
