"There is tremendous interest nationally and internationally from healthcare providers to learn more about Evofem's vaginal pH modulator, Phexxi, for contraception and for investigational EVO100 for protection from certain sexually transmitted infections including chlamydia and gonorrhea."
The 2021 fall medical society meeting season begins with two posters at the Society of Family Planning (SFP) Annual Meeting:
