I've used VCF before and it irritated my vagina, guess I was allergic to it, so I stopped it and it went away. I'm thinking it was the film itself, though, and not the spermicide. My husband has used condoms with spermicide dozen of times in the past and I never had a problem at all.
VCF did not work for me either! I had a bad reaction to it, so I had to discontinue. I then tried the foaming stuff shaped like a bullet that you place inside the vagina. That worked for me really well for me, however, it irritated my husband! Yikes! So, we just went back to condoms!
