Birth Control : Diaphragm
The diaphragm is a cervical barrier method of contraception. It is a dome-shaped device made of latex that is fitted into the vagina to provide a snug seal that prevents sperm from entering the cervix. It is used with a spermicidal jelly or cream to add additional barrier protection. The diaphragm must be fitted for your vagina by a healthcare professional. The Diaphragm is used each time you have intercourse. It is left in the vagina for 6-8 hours following the last time your partner ejaculated before it can be removed. It is 86% effective if used correctly. If neither you nor your partner are allergic to latex, or the spermicidal cream or jelly, the diaphragm will be safe to use. If left in place too long, you become susceptible to urinary tract infections and on rare occasions, toxic shock has been reported. It must be used for every sexual intercourse event or there will be a high failure rate. There is limited protection against sexually transmitted diseases (STD). It should not be relied upon to prevent STDs or HIV.
