however long it takes to clean up (typically a few seconds!) leaving the sponge in the vaginal canal for a prolonged period of time does not increase effectiveness. find the complete set of instructions here.

in order to use the product, gently swirl and twist sponge as needed, while inserted in the vaginal canal. find the complete set of instructions here.
a tampon is a dense piece of cotton meant to absorb much more fluid for a long period of time. dripstick is made of a soft sponge that absorbs quickly (in a few seconds), and meant for less fluid (so you don't risk microtears in your vaginal walls!)
dripstick is NOT a form of birth control, STD/STI protection, or menstruation product.
our sample pack comes with three dripsticks so you can try them out before you commit to a bigger box.
the sponge is made from medical grade polyurethane (this is the same material as some condoms, and the contraceptive sponge!) and polypropylene handle. there are no additives.
if you are having trouble with insertion, wait a minute for gravity to do it's thing! think about it like this - if the cum is deposited pretty deep inside of you and hasn't slid down yet, there is nothing for the sponge to absorb or slide against.
correct. the vagina is self cleaning - our product is only to be used if there are excess fluids present.
