Nonoxynol 9 May be dangerous not a HIV/STD preventative


Nonoxynol-9 Latest study shows INCREASED HIV transmission rate 50%! Latest August 2000 study confirms earlier studies and it has has been withdrawn from most products. It had been shown to kill HIV in a test tube but in real women who used N-9 they had more vaginal lesions, which might have facilitated HIV transmission.
