hi Morecr,
thanks for the query.

Today vaginal tablet is made of polyurethane impregnated with 1gm of nonoxynol-9 as a spermicide.
nonoxynol-9 acts as a surfactant.

Ingestion of this may cause abdominal discomfort, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

If accidental ingestion occurs,
-have to visit the physician immediately or contact poison control center right away.

-do not induce vomiting,
-do not give anything by mouth,
-loosen tight clothing around the neck, around the waist,
-take the tablet container or the label

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
take care.
