FemCap

2009 December 15

A FemCap is a silicone cup that is inserted into the vagina to act as a barrier to sperm entering the cervix. The FemCap has a tighter fit over the cervix than the traditional diaphragm and can be used by women who have given birth. The FemCap comes in three sizes and manufacturers recommend using spermicide with the FemCap to increase effectiveness. Before considering the FemCap, users need to be able to locate their cervix and feel comfortable touching their vagina.

For more information on the FemCap, visit the manufacturer’s website “here”:http://www.femcap.com/

FemCap is not available at ISHS but is available through the VI Women’s Clinic. Call 250-480-7338 or check out their website “here”:http://www.viwomensclinic.ca for more information.
