Does washing out the vagina after sex prevent pregnancy?

Does washing out the vagina after sex prevent pregnancy?

I wouldn't recommend: While in theory it could help, but I would never encourage any women to utilize this as a form of birth control.

Combine the condom with a vaginal contraceptive like VCF and your failure rate drops to 3%. Use the condom with a hormonal contraceptive and your failure rate is less than 1%.
