Cervical Caps

femcap for couples

How It Works

Pregnancy can only occur if sperm enters the cervix, travels up to the uterus, and meets a fertile egg. Stopping the sperm's journey is really all that is needed to eliminate the risk of pregnancy at the root.

Turning off ovulation with hormonal birth control, or implanting a foreign substance like a coil/IUD to stop implantation, are both drastic measures that we've come to accept as the only birth control options. But they are not!

It's is simple concept with outstanding results. Place a silicone cap over the cervix to stop sperm from advancing to the uterus. Years of research went into designing the perfect cervical cap that would be comfortable, effective, and easy to use.

FemCap is FDA approved for contraceptive use.

Simplified Sizing For All Women

femcap sizing


With the FemCap, accessibility to a doctor trained in diaphragm sizing is no longer necessary. Diaphragm sizing is decided by the ever changing size of the vaginal cavity which can fluctuate as a woman gains or looses weight or exercises to achieve firmer muscle mass in the buttocks, lower abdomen and inner thigh area.

Since the FemCap sits on top of the cervix, its size is determined by the size of the cervix itself.

After puberty, a woman's cervix size corresponds to a 22mm FemCap unless she becomes pregnant. Two weeks after conception, the cervix dilates irreversibly. This is important because even if a women miscarries early in the pregnancy and perhaps is not even aware she conceived, her cervix size has changed and a 26mm FemCap is now necessary. Vaginal delivery once again changes the cervix size; the correct size for someone who has had a vaginal delivery is 30mm.

This simple sizing system based on a woman's obstetric history means it is easy to self-size. This is key to providing effective barrier contraceptive solutions where access to a Doctor for correct diaphragm sizing is not an option. Choose your size, order online, and you can start enjoying natural birth control right away.

FemCap VS Diaphragm


A cervical cap, as the name suggests, caps the cervix like a thimble capping the thumb. This produces a tight suctioned seal, preventing sperm from entering the uterus. Contraceptive gel placed in the dome of the cap increases the suction and adds a second level of protection.

In contrast, a diaphragm sits inside the vaginal cavity and is held in place by muscular support from the sides of the vaginal cavity. The traditional diaphragm design can slip out of place, and if just one side moves too far inwards or outwards, the protective seal may be broken.

Another benefit of the FemCap is its small size. Diaphragms are around the size of the palm of your hand, and can be intimidating and unwieldy. A FemCap is about a third of the size of an average size diaphragm, so it is often easier to get a hang of insertion and removal.

The brim is designed to hold additional contraceptive gel in place and direct the flow of sperm directly towards the gel. This is the third level of protection, further increasing the effectiveness of the FemCap.

The last obviously noticeable addition to FemCap is the removal ring. You can simply gently press the dome of the FemCap to release any suction, and then slip your finger into the ring to gently remove the FemCap.

Top Five Reasons To Choose FemCap

1. More Pleasurable Sex

Synthetic hormones lower libido. Condoms interrupt the intimacy of skin-to-skin sex. This was not the way sex was meant to be! Enjoy more intimate, pleasurable sex with FemCap.

2. Be Spontaneous

FemCap is easy to use and can be inserted hours before intercourse. No fumbling with a condom and breaking the flow of the moment.

3. Simple Sizing

FemCap eliminates the problem of finding a doctor to fit your barrier contraceptive. The size you need is simply determined by your obstetrical history, so you can order your FemCap online today!

4. Environmentally Friendly

FemCap is reusable and made of a non-allergenic latex-free material, so your carbon footprint is kept to a minimum. Good for you. Good for the world.

5. Stay Balanced

Do you really want to replace your natural femininity with artificial hormones? The pill and other hormonal birth control lowers libido, causes mood swings and depression, and a host of other side effects. And of course, a number of long term health risks are liked to artificial hormones also. FemCap allows your fertility and menstrual cycle to fluctuate organically, without altering your internal balance. Bonus: enjoy reliable hormone-free contraception while breastfeeding!

FemCap Must Be Used With Spermicide Or Contraceptive Gel

contragel natural spermicide alternative

You can only achieve excellent contraceptive effectiveness when you use your barrier contraceptive (diaphragm, FemCap, or Caya) together with a contraceptive gel. But when it comes to which contraceptive gel to use, you have a choice: toxic Nonoxynol-9 spermicides, or gentle, natural ContraGel.

There are two main problems with spermicide gel. First, Nonoxynol-9 has a similar chemical makeup as harsh cleaning products. To do their job, N-9 spermicide effectively kills sperm cells. But in addition to sperm, spermicide also attacks sensitive intimate skin cells. That's why so many woman and men report burning, irritation and rashes after using N-9 products. Far from ideal for an intimate product!

Secondly, skin absorbs toxins that are put on them and those toxins travel thorugh the body. The porous vaginal mucous membranes are particularly suseeptable to absorbing the chemicals, so the harsh chemical that was meant to kill sperm can end up dirubting yoru internal balance.

An Effective Spermicide Alterntive

ContraGel is the safe natural spermicide alternative. ContraGel contains no Nonoxynol-9, is vegan, and totally non-toxic. ContraGel was even formulated to be compatible with and not disrupt vaginal pH. The choice between ContraGel and nonoxynol-9 spermicide should be obvious —but is there a difference in effectiveness?

In an outstanding new medical study, ContraGel was proven to be just as effective as Nonoxynol-9 spermicides when paired with diaphragms. This is a massive victory for women all over the world who were waiting for confirmation that their birth control method is as effective as it is natural. Body-friendly, eco-friendly, and natural ContraGel is the clear winner in the battle of the contraceptive gels.

ContraGel is water soluble and safe to use with silicone diaphragms and cervical caps, as well as latex or polyurethane condoms. It is specifically compatible with YES brand water-based lubricants.

ContraGel Ingredients: water, lactic acid, sodium lactate, methyl cellulose, sorbic acid, and vanillin.

ContraGel Best Price

Too often we resign to using a cheaper, less healthy options simply because the natural alternative is too expensive. But ContraGel believes in approachable pricing. Each tube of ContraGel lasts for 15 to 20 applications, and the value 3-pack or case of 10 ContraGel tubes makes ContraGel even more affordable than many other spermicides.

Why Use Your FemCap Every Day If The Risk Of Pregnancy Lasts Only One Week?

ovulation and fertility tracking

 

The goal of barrier contraception is to prevent sperm from reaching and fertilizing an egg — but fertilization is biologically impossible unless a viable egg is present.

 

Natural Family Planning (NFP) and the Fertility Awareness Method (FAM) identify ovulation, nullifying the need for contraceptives most of the month. Sperm can live inside the womb for up to 5 days, and ovulation releases an egg which is able to be fertilized for one day. That six day span is referred to as the fertility window, and is the only time there is actually a real need for a barrier device.

 

Cyclotest uses Sympto-Thermal fertility charting to identify that fertility window. Ovulation causes a spike in Basal body temperature (BBT), so by recording that data every morning, you can see when you have ovulated.

 

With 99% reliability, why not let Cyclotest make your family planning decisions for you?
