About The Today(R) Sponge

The Today Sponge is a soft polyurethane sponge containing nonoxynol 9, a spermicide used by millions of women for more than 40 years. The Today Sponge prevents pregnancy in 3 ways:

1) by blocking the sperm's path 2) by absorbing the sperm and 3) by continuously releasing nonoxynol 9, which quickly kills the sperm on contact. For more information including effectiveness, directions and warnings visit:
