About Evofem


Evofem, Inc., formerly Instead Inc., advances women's sexual and reproductive health through personal care, disease prevention and contraception products. We are a unique provider of feminine hygiene in that we don't manufacture other consumer products such as diapers, cleaners, and other unrelated products; all of Evofem's work centers on women's health. Evofem provides women with greater freedom, comfort and control of their reproductive and sexual health. We are dedicated and passionate about the struggles and issues of all women and work to improve their lives, not only through innovation but through charity, good will and working with other people and organizations with the same mission.


In pursuing our mission, Evofem seeks to develop products that offer women not only new options, but better options. There are still many areas where women's needs are unmet or underserved. Our goal is to bring products to market that meet these unmet needs in order to give women back their freedom and put them in control of their own health and safety. We invest heavily in ensuring that our products meet the highest safety standards while maintaining their effectiveness, all without compromise to the acceptability of our products by the women who use and depend on them.

Evofem Currently Focuses on the Following Women’s Needs:

  • Period protection and feminine hygiene
  • Contraception
  • Prevention of STIs including HIV/AIDS
  • Other vaginal therapies


We believe that a healthy woman is also an educated woman.  A woman who is well-informed about her body and the products that are available to her is able to make smarter and healthier choices. Her knowledge allows her to do the best and the most she can to protect herself and enhance her everyday life.

At Evofem we educate and inform women around the world by providing ready access to up-to-date news and  information on reproductive and sexual health issues.
