WHY HAS NONOXYNOL-9 BEEN REMOVED FROM MANY SEXUAL LUBRICANTS AND CONTRACEPTIVE PRODUCTS?

                Nonoxynol-9 (N-9) had been recognized as an effective spermicide and began showing up in contraceptive gels and some sexual lubricants. Nonoxynol-9 was often include in the lubrication of lubricated condoms, offering a back up to the latex barrier. It was reported that N-9 was also effective in killing a number of viruses, including the virus (HIV) responsible of the auto-immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS).

                 In August 2000, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a statement regarding recent findings of an important study about HIV prevention in women. This study was conducted by researchers with the Joint United Nations Program on AIDS (UNAIDS).

                 The researchers found that the women participating in the study who used Nonoxynol-9 (N-9) gel had become infected with HIV at about a 50% higher rate than women who used a placebo gel.

                 It was also found that the more frequently women used only N-9 gel (without a condom) to protect themselves, the higher their risk of becoming infected. Simply stated, N-9 did not protect against HIV infection and may have caused more transmission. Women who used N-9 also had more vaginal lesions, which might have facilitated HIV transmission.
