What is "the Diaphragm"?
The diaphragm is a round rubber dome that fits inside a woman's vagina and covers her cervix. It must be used with spermicide (a sperm-killing cream or jelly).
 
How does the Diaphragm work?
The diaphragm is a barrier method of birth control that prevents pregnancy by placing a physical and chemical "wall" between the sperm and the cervix.  It must always be used with a spermicidal cream or jelly.  Be sure that the jelly or cream you purchase is a spermicide containing nonoxynol-9
 
How effective is the Diaphragm?
The diaphragm is NOT the most effective form of birth control.  Effectiveness includes the use of spermicide.  Among perfect users (women who use the diaphragm EVERY time they have sex), about 6 in 100 women (6%) is expected to become pregnant over the first year of use.  Among typical users, 18 in 100 women will become pregnant over one year of use.   However, using a condom along with the diaphragm will increase the effectiveness AND provide protection from sexually transmitted disease.
 
Am I a good candidate for the Diaphragm?
The diaphragm is worth considering if you cannot or prefer not to use hormonal birth control. You must be able to use it every time you have sex.
 
Are there any reasons why I shouldn't use the Diaphragm?
The diaphragm may not be a good choice for you if you are unlikely to use it correctly every time you have sex.  You may not be able to use it if you or your partner is sensitive to the chemicals used in spermicides or has a latex allergy.  You may have a higher failure rate if you have intercourse three or more times per week.
 
What are the most common side effects of the Diaphragm?
Abortion Clinic RU486 increased risk of urinary tract infections.
Abortion Clinic RU486 yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis.
Abortion Clinic RU486 sensitivity due to latex allergy.
 
What are the benefits of the Diaphragm?
Abortion Clinic RU486 almost no side effects and does not effect your hormonal pattern
Abortion Clinic RU486 lower risk of cervical cancer and pre-cancerous conditions of the cervix
How do I use a Diaphragm?

Here are the basic instructions for inserting a diaphragm:

  1. Wash your hands carefully with soap and water before inserting the diaphragm.  Apply spermicidal cream or jelly around the rim and inside the dome of the diaphragm.  The spermicide must be on the side of the diaphragm facing or in contact with the cervix.  It also can be placed on both sides.
  2. Squeeze the rim of the diaphragm between your fingers and insert it into your vagina.  When the diaphragm is pushed up as far as it will go, the front part of the rim should be up behind a bone you can feel in front of your pelvis (the pubic bone).  Tuck the front rim of the diaphragm up as far as it will comfortably go.
  3. Check to see if your cervix is covered.  To do this, reach inside and touch your cervix.  The cervix feels something like the tip of your nose.  After the diaphragm is in place, the cervix should be completely covered by the rubber dome.
