HAS NONOXYNOL-9 BEEN REMOVED FROM MANY SEXUAL LUBRICANTS AND CONTRACEPTIVE
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.
