What is the Cervical Cap? The cervical cap is a type of barrier birth control that is used to prevent unplanned pregnancies. Like the diaphragm, the cervical cap works to prevent sperm from entering the uterus. Unlike the diaphragm, however, the cervical cap is much smaller and fits more tightly around the cervix when in place. Made out of silicone rubber, there is currently only one type of cervical cap available on the American market.

What is the Cervical Cap? The cervical cap is a type of barrier birth control that is used to prevent unplanned pregnancies. Like the diaphragm, the cervical cap works to prevent sperm from entering the uterus. Unlike the diaphragm, however, the cervical cap is much smaller and fits more tightly around the cervix when in place. Made out of silicone rubber, there is currently only one type of cervical cap available on the American market. Known as the FemCap, this cervical cap consists of a dome that covers the cervix, a brim which holds the cap tightly in place, and a groove which can hold spermicide jelly or cream.

The Today Sponge combines a spermicide with a barrier contraceptive. It offers an immediate and continuous presence of the spermicide nonoxynol-9 throughout a 24-hour period, allowing for as many acts of intercourse as desired within that period without the need for additional spermicide. Learning to use the Today Sponge has been compared with learning to use contact lenses. With a little practice, insertion and removal become simple procedures. Following these easy steps will ensure proper placement and usage.
