Diaphragm / Caps

  • A barrier method of contraception
  • Often known as ‘The Cap’
  • Non-hormonal
  • Fits inside the vagina and covers the cervix (neck of womb)

The diaphragm, if used properly, with spermicide is 92 – 96% effective at preventing pregnancy. It may provide slight protection against sexually transmitted infections.

An initial visit to the Family Planning Clinic is required to ensure you are fitted with the correct size of Diaphragm.

Considerations

The size of diaphragm you require may alter due to fluctuations in weight or pregnancy

Yearly check ups are recommended to ensure your diaphragm is fitting correctly.
