What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.


Phexxi is a birth control gel that does not contain any hormones. Instead, it contains lactic acid, citric acid, and potassium bitartrate.


Phexxi comes in pre-filled vaginal applicators. Each applicator is for single-use only, providing 5 grams of gel that contains 1.8% lactic acid, 1% citric acid, and 0.4% potassium bitartrate.

Follow your prescription's instructions. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your Phexxi prescription, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

Insert one pre-filled applicator vaginally within one hour before vaginal sex. A new pre-filled applicator should be administered if you have vaginal sex more than one time within one hour. 

Once you have inserted the applicator into your vagina, push the plunger rod down with your finger until it stops. This will ensure delivery of the full dose of Phexxi gel. Remove the plunger rod and applicator from the vagina and discard into the trash.


The active ingredients in Phexx are lactic acid, citric acid, and potassium bitartrate.


  • Before you start using Phexxi vaginal gel, inform your doctor:
    • Of all the medications you take. These include prescription, nonprescription, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
    • Of your allergies.
    • Of your health problems.
    • Of your pregnancy status.
    • Of your breastfeeding status.
  • Phexxi will not protect you from sexually transmitted infections.
  • If you have a vaginal ring, you should not use Phexxi.
  • If you or your partner is allergic to lactic acid, citric acid, potassium bitartrate, or any of Phexxi's other ingredients, avoid using Phexxi.
  • If you have recurrent bladder or kidney infections, avoid using Phexxi.
  • Contact your doctor immediately if you or your partner experience genital discomfort, or if you develop vaginal burning, itching, or discharge or if you develop a yeast infection, urinary tract infection, or bacterial vaginosis.

Side Effects

The most common side effects of Phexxi include vaginal burning, vaginal itching, vaginal discomfort, vaginal pain, vaginal discharge, vaginal yeast infection, urinary tract infection, bacterial vaginosis, painful urination, and general discomfort. However, Phexxi can cause other side effects. Contact your doctor immediately if you have side effects that are concerning or persistent.
