Contraceptive Sponge to Return to Market

Linda A. Johnson, writing for the Associated Press, reports that the contraceptive sponge is about to return to the U.S. market after a ten-year hiatus. The sponge is one of the older forms of birth control used by women and, while not as effective as some other means now available, preferred by many because of comfort and convenience.

While this would be good news for many women, a word of caution applies: This device will not prevent the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases.
