What Is The FemCap?
Detailed Info and Support
Are you ready for natural, safe, and pleasurable sex?
Release yourself from the endless side effects and long term health risks of hormonal birth control. Say goodbye to mood mood-killing condoms.
FemCap is the ultimate natural birth control solution.
FemCap is a small and easily inserted cervical cap constructed from strong, medical grade hypoallergenic silicone. The dome of the cap, together with contraceptive gel, lightly suctions to the cervix, making it impossible for sperm to enter.
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 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 befit 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.
Simplified Sizing For All Women
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.
Risks And Disadvantages
There are only a few disadvantages to using FemCap, and they are rarely serious enough to cause people to discontinue use. First of all, planning is necessary before engaging in sexual intimacy when practicing contraception with FemCap because it must be inserted before being sexually aroused. Therefore, if you know you're going to have sex or are likely to have sex, take the time to insert it before hand so that spontaneity will not be interrupted.
Also, because women are often unable to feel FemCap's presence, they may forget to remove it and leave it in for over 48 hours.This can lead to urinary tract infections.
To be effective, Fem-Cap must be used in conjunction with a contraceptive gel such as Gynol, Gygel or ContraGel. The gel assists in creating a suction between the curved inner side of the FemCap and the cervix
A woman should not use FemCap if she has an infection in her vagina, cervix, or pelvic area, or a cut or tear in her vagina or cervix.
Make sure to read the instruction manual thoroughly, including the removal advice, prior to using FemCap. And finally remember, no method of contraception can offer 100% reliability.
Keep It Natural With ContraGel
Contraceptive gel or spermicide must be used along with the FemCap, but many couples don't want to use harsh Nonoxonal-9 chemicals in their most intimate areas.
ContraGel is a spermicide alternative that does not contain Nonoxynol 9 at all. The natural ingredients don't need the overkill of such powerful pharmaceuticals. The FemCap is sealed because of the viscosity of the gel and the low pH immobilize the sperm, ensuring no live sperm pass the barrier and enter the cervix.
The 60 gram tube of ContraGel typically provides 15-20 usages. These numbers are based on the typical requirements of three to four ml applied to diaphragms and cervical caps for each act of intercourse. Additional ContraGel should be applied to the FemCap with a finger or vaginal applicator if more then one act of intercourse occurs.
RDO Medical is the official UK and Eire distributor of ContraGel Green natural contraceptive gel. It is available for immediate shipping on a wholesale and retail basis.
Learn About The 6 -8 Days Each Cycle When FemCap Is Needed To Prevent Pregnancy
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 Fertility Awareness Method (FAM) identify when there is or is not an egg present, 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 Symptothermal fertility charting to identify that fertility window by using a daily basal body temperature (BBT) reading. Changes in the BBT readings help identify ovulation and form the fertility window.
With 99% reliability, why not let Cyclotest make your contraceptive decisions for you?
