Sign The Petition

Sign our petition to demand that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services cover Phexxi® under insurance, so women can access non-hormonal birth control options.

We're Fighting For Equal Contraceptive Rights & Coverage

For far too long, women have been denied access to all types of contraceptive coverage. Despite the progress made in providing universal access to birth control, women still lack easy, affordable access to non-hormonal birth control. That’s because the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is allowing insurance companies to deny women access to non-hormonal birth control, undercutting the true intent of the Affordable Care Act.

Meanwhile, hormonal birth control has been linked to a variety of mild side effects – including acne, weight gain, headaches, and mood changes – as well as severe side effects such as abdominal pain, migraines, blurred vision, chest pain, difficulty conceiving, and an increased risk of contracting certain types of cancer.

Thankfully, there is a FDA-approved alternative to hormonal birth control on the market, Phexxi®

We Must Act NOW!

Phexxi is currently available on the market, but is not included as a benefit on many health insurance plans. That means women who want access to this non-hormonal birth control need to pay out of pocket to use it.

That’s not right. It’s time to tell HHS to update its list of birth control so that
Phexxi is a covered contraceptive choice by insurance and the Affordable Care Act.

INDICATION

Phexxi® is an on-demand method of birth control used to prevent pregnancy. Phexxi is not effective when used after sex.

Phexxi is a hormone-free, prescription vaginal gel that prevents pregnancy. You only use it when you need it (unlike hormonal birth control, which needs to be taken at the same time every day).

  • Phexxi comes in an applicator, similar to the applicator for a tampon.

  • One prescription includes 12 individually wrapped single-dose applicators.

  • Phexxi is used right before each act of sex, or up to one hour before sex, and is effective immediately.

  • The contraceptive effects of Phexxi are temporary and easily reversible, making it an option for women who are concerned about future fertility.

Phexxi works by maintaining the natural pH of your vagina. It contains no hormones. Also – you use Phexxi only when you need it, not all the time.
