If you’re searching for a hormone-free, body-friendly contraception method, look no further than the Caya diaphragm or contraceptive cap.
The Caya Contoured Diaphragm is uniquely designed to fit almost any female body thanks to its ergonomic shape. The curved cervical cup is so thin that it will comfortably fit any woman’s cervix and will not be felt by you or your partner during intercourse. Caya is made from medical grade silicone which is completely safe for your body and feels silky smooth and natural.
Some traditional contraceptive diaphragms have metal rims to help them ‘spring’ into their rounded shape. Since metal is quite rigid the diaphragm can push against your vaginal walls and feel bulky and uncomfortable. Plus, it can make it difficult to grab hold of the rim to remove the diaphragm, and there is nothing worse than the feeling that you have something ‘stuck’, and struggling to remove diaphragms like this can cause the vaginal walls to become sore.
The Caya has a lightweight nylon rim encased in body friendly silicone which makes it lighter and much more flexible than traditional diaphragms, allowing it to conform to the shape of your body without any discomfort. Plus, it has a unique removal dome which allows you to easily hook your finger underneath the rim to remove the diaphragm quickly. Another great feature is the grip dimples on each side of the rim; these are designed to help you squeeze the diaphragm when inserting it without your fingers slipping and causing the diaphragm to spring out until it is positioned correctly inside your vagina.
Caya contraception is simple to use and hassle-free!
These clever design features help make using your Caya diaphragm as simple and hassle-free as possible. You can wear it for up to 24 hours at a time, and since it is so thin and flexible you will barely even notice it’s there. It’s a brilliant alternative to condoms as it won’t reduce sensation for either partner or cause adverse reactions in those allergic to latex.
The Caya is also a great alternative to the contraceptive pill, implant or contraceptive injections because it is completely free from hormones. Some women cannot use hormone based contraceptives for a number of reasons, for example if they are undergoing cancer treatment, if they are at risk from thrombosis or if they have recently given birth. Many women are simply sensitive to hormones and experience severe side effects such as spotting, acne, headaches and nausea as a result of using hormone-based contraceptives. The Caya has absolutely no side effects, and it will not interfere with your menstrual cycle or temporarily affect your fertility like the pill can.
Included with your Caya Diaphragm is the following:
- Caya Diaphragm in medical grade silicone
- Discreet storage case
- Caya Diaphragm instruction manual
- Instructional DVD showing you how to use a Caya diaphragm.
The Caya Contoured Diaphragm is created by MedIntim, a leading German manufacturer known for its innovative, high quality and incredibly effective medical devices. The Caya is a Class II medical device and is as safe to use as any traditional diaphragm when used with a spermicidal gel. We recommend Caya Gel or ContraGel; both are free from nonoxynol-9 and are lactic acid based to be kind to your body.

- Couldn't be happier Review by Chris
I had no trouble at all inserting it, but I use a menstrual cup, which I think was good practice as the caya is easier to insert than a cup.
The caya gel has a pleasant and unobtrusive vanilla scent, and has not given me any trouble despite being sensitive to many brands of condoms/lube.
I can't feel it once it's in, and my partner can't tell whether it's in or not, so i guess it passes that test. There is a similar gap in proceedings when you put it in to when you use condoms, and you have to remember to remove it the next morning (removal is easy). I understand why it's not a replacement for condoms outside of committed relationships (no std cover, slightly less effective) but can't for the life of me understand why they're not more commonly used. It's the best method I've used by far! (Posted on 21 November 2016)
- Excellent Review by Heather

- Sizing Review by helles
Thank you for your feedback, however I have read the Caya instructions featured as a download on this page and nowhere does it state that you need to be fitted by a professional or anything about sizing, infact it is only available in one size . The instruction leaflet is comprehensive and I am sorry that you feel you are unable to fit this correctly. Do you have the instructions? The link is on this page and they detail how easy it is to fit and no where do the manufacturers talk about 'sizing'. They do however state 'Ask your healthcare provider, if:– If you have difficulty getting the Caya® diaphragm to fit in your body comfortably (rare)
– You use treatments for vaginal infections (rare)
– You frequently suffer from urinary tract infections (rare)
– You have had lower abdominal/vaginal surgery (very rare)
– You have ever had a Toxic Shock Syndrome (very rare)
This would be the only reason you would need to consult with a healthcare provider. Please do feel free to call our helpline where we can help you further, we would not want to think that you could not enjoy the benefits of this easy to use device.

- Free at last - so liberating Review by Sharky
- WORKS GREAT Review by Shell
- Easy to use, love the freedom it gives me. Review by Lynda F
Thank you for your question, this innovative diaphragm is available in one size and it fits most women, offering a pure barrier method that does not interfere with natural hormone levels and is free of side effects. For reliable contraception, it is recommended to use the diaphragm together with a contraceptive gel, such as Caya Gel.
Unlike conventional diaphragms, the size of the Caya® contoured diaphragm does not need to be adapted. Extensive studies have demonstrated that one size suits almost every woman. Ideally you should be familiar with their own anatomy to ensure safe application.
I double checked the contraindications on the Caya site in Germany and it says the following that I wanted to add::
Caya® should not be used during the first six weeks after childbirth. Women who have previously used a small (60 mm) or larger (85 mm or more) diaphragm cannot use this new contraceptive method.
Full instructions for use are included with eeach Caya and it is very easy to use and position. I hope this helps
Thank you for your enquiry.
I have had a look at the Manual for the Caya Diaphragm and it does not state any sizing measurements only that it is one size.
They do however state 'Ask your healthcare provider, if:– If you have difficulty getting the Caya® diaphragm to fit in your body comfortably (rare)' .
Hope this helps!
On checking the Pearl Index http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_birth_control_methods#mediaviewer/File:Effectivenessofcontraceptives.png - (the usual standard for birth control comparison) diaphragms come out at 12% per 100 women. The Caya result used a different survey method http://www.caya.eu/triple-safety/, and compared 450 women coming in at 13.7% and I am afraid I do not have the clinical knowledge to say if this is due to the design, I am sorry I can't give you a definitive answer.
I hope this information helps you.
