FemCap Cervical Cap: For Hormone Free Contraception
What Is The FemCap Cervical Cap?
FemCap is the hormone-free birth control solution for the modern women. Instead of turning off ovulation with hormonal birth control or implanting a foreign device like a coil/IUD to stop implantation, FemCap creates simply a barrier between the cervix and the sperm. A small silicone cap is placed directly over the cervix to stop sperm from traveling towards the uterus. Because pregnancy can only occur if sperm enters the cervix, travels to the uterus, and meets a fertile egg, this barrier eliminates the risk of pregnancy.
Years of research went into designing a cervical cap that is comfortable, precise, and easy to use. It's a simple concept, with outstanding results.
Safe, effective, and side-effect free birth control is finally accessible thanks to the FemCap.
Finding Your Size: It's Simple
Diaphragm size is determined by the size of the vaginal canal, which changes often throughout a woman's life and can only be assessed by a trained healthcare professional. Because FemCap is placed directly on the cervix, which can ONLY be one of three sizes, choosing the correct FemCap size is drastically easier than finding the correct diaphragm size.
After puberty, a woman's cervix size corresponds to a 22mm FemCap. Unless she becomes pregnant, this does not change. Two weeks after conception, the cervix enlarges. This is important because even if a woman miscarries early in the pregnancy her cervix size has changed, and a 26mm FemCap is now necessary. Vaginal delivery is that last event that 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 health care professional is difficult. Choose your size, order online, and you can start enjoying natural contraception immediately.
Soft Brim: One side of the brim is longer and one side being shorter, and advanced design that was proven to prevent the FemCap from becoming dislodged during intercourse. The brim is soft and flexible and is comfortable for both partners during intercourse.
Dome: The dome is made from a highly durable silicone, which suctions to the tip of the cervix. The cervix always remains covered by the dome, even though the rest of the FemCap is designed to rotate during intercourse to accommodate different sexual positions.
Deep Groove: The Sperm is directed towards the deep groove holding ContraGel or spermicide.
Removal Strap: FemCap's removal strap makes it easy to simply slip your finger through the strap and remove the FemCap from the vaginal canal. This is a huge upgrade on traditional diaphragms, where users often struggled get a secure grip and comfortably remove the diaphragm.
