FDA Approves Tampons As An Effective Form Of Birth Control When Left In Place During Intercourse.
The FDA has just announced that they are putting their stamp of approval on a new type of birth control – something almost every woman uses on a regular basis.
The FDA has approved tampons as an effective form of birth control with a .08% failure rate. They call this reversible form of birth control the ‘Barrier Method’.
According to the FDA, they have been testing this barrier method for almost a decade now. They are fully confident in it ability to prevent unwanted pregnancies.
They say it is 99% effective. Effectiveness can be measured during “perfect use,” when the method is used correctly and consistently as directed.
The best way to reduce the risk of unintended pregnancy among women is to use effective birth control correctly and consistently.
The barrier method is placed inside the woman to cover the cervix and block sperm. They found that it is the dioxin and rayon in the tampon that has a number of related chemical compounds that act as a spermicide, a substance that destroys the sperm.
Companies can be expected to begin marketing this device as soon as Summer, 2015.
