NOTHING is 100% effective and you always run the risk of getting pregnant. The only Birth Control is the pill or patch and there are a lot of long-term side effects from this. This problem has always been a blight to women and scientists would come up with more options for birth control for men only they'd forget to take it. LOL
Spermicidal lubricant is, I believe, usually on the inside of condoms.
no. read the package
No. Only the ones that say Spermicidal Lubricant.
some do some don't. read the box
Trojan brand condoms are the most reliable. Use their spermicidal lubricant types for increased protection.
Spermicidal condoms kill sperm.
Yes they do, in fact spermicides used together with latex condoms are quite effective.
Properly used they are very effective. BUT no birth control is 100% effective.

You have lubrication on all condoms. Some say spermicidal and some say non spermicidal. If it is spermicidal this means that the sperm is killed inside the condom. And No spermicidal means it doesnt kill the sperm.
In the US, spermicidal foam is available without a prescription. It is not a very effective contraceptive on its own, but is effective when used with condoms or other forms of contraception.
Because a lubricant (makes things slippery) so a condom may be lubricated but not kill sperm (spermicide) BUT all spermicidal condoms are also lubricated.

Spermicidal condoms are very effective providing they do not rip or tear..1 percent according to condom labels. Condoms are 99.9 percent effective. Word of advice from a single mom though, go get birth control and always use a condom. Better to be super safe, than not.
the ones that don't say they are spermicidal.
Yes, lubricant is not a contraceptive in it's own right. There are lubricants which include a spermicidal agent (something to kill sperm.) They are very unreliable on their own but can improve the reliability of other barrier methods such as condoms or caps.
The latex or material they are made of can wear down, and become less effective, and expire. Also, if they are spermicidal, the spermicide can expire as well.
The most recommended condoms, or the safest condoms to use, are Trojan-Enz Spermicidal Condoms. It should be a blue box.
Some are and some aren't but if the package doesn't say spermicidal lubricant, assume it's not and get your own. It's over the counter in most drugstores in the U.S.
The sperm does not die any faster inside a condom than it would outside the body, unless you buy the condoms that have spermicidal lubricant in them. Still, not 100% of them die.
If used correctly, they are 97% effective. The good thing about the spermicidal condoms are if the condom leaks or breaks, your chances of getting pregnant are still somewhat slim because the spermicide may kill the sperm that 'got away'. Also, condoms are the only protection one gets against STDs. The thing is, when used often, spermicide is harmful to the vagina.
Since Vaseline is not a spermicidal, the answer would be yes.
Yes, you need spermicidal lubricant and fast fingers.
Condoms, IUDs, spermicidal sprays, celibacy, pills.
They increase the protection by about 5 % I think and the box even tells you that the condoms with spermicidal lubricant are not to be used in place of a vaginal spermicide in combination with a condom the spermicidal lubricant is just there to add a little more insurance in case the condom breaks but as you know many people still do get pregnant so use a more reliable form of birth control in combination with the condom....hope this helps Good Luck and God Bless!!SPERMICIDAL CONDOMSIF THE condom has nonoxynol-9 as a spermicidal lube, nonoxyl-9 does prevent pregnancies and also kills the AIDS virus. However, I don't know HOW MUCH is actually present on the condom, so a good precaution would be to use a nonoxyl-9 suppository such as "ENCARE" in ADDITION to the condom. Encare is sold where condoms and lubricants are sold. Better safe than sorry! AnswerI have never heard of nonoxynol 9 killing the HIV virus there is no scientific evidence of this.... --Check out the website MedScape.com and search nonoxynol-9. There is a great deal of info there. MedScape Select links the search to 170 of the most clinically relevent journals for physicians. Thanks.Nonoxynol-9 can actually irritate cells prone to HIV and its common to have allergic reactions when using spermicides containing it.
