FemCap is the perfect, modern alternative to the diaphragm - safe and effective hormone-free birth control for health-conscious women
If you are looking for a hormone-free alternative to more traditional methods of birth control, the FemCap cervical cap could be exactly what you are looking for. The FemCap is a similar concept to the traditional diaphragm, and works by covering the cervix, preventing sperm from entering. Unlike traditional diaphragms and caps, the FemCap does not need fitting by a health professional - it is available in three simple sizes, and the one you need is simply based on your pregnancy history.
- Small (22mm): is designed for women who have never been pregnant.
- Medium (26mm): for women who have been pregnant (even if only for two weeks) and have miscarried, undergone termination, or given birth by caesarian section - this size should be used if there is doubt over whether you have ever been pregnant.
- Large (30mm): for all women who have given birth vaginally.
The FemCap is a hormone-free method of birth control that can remain in place for up to 48 hours at a time, and is fully reusable for up to a year, so is a very economical choice when compared with the price of condoms. After each use, simply wash your FemCap with a gentle antibacterial hand soap and store in its case... as simple as that.
The FemCap should be used in conjunction with a contraceptive gel to ensure proper protection against pregnancy. We recommend the use of ContraGel Green Natural Vegan Contraceptive Gel - unlike other contraceptive gels, ContraGel Green contains no harmful Nonoxynol-9 and is made of 100% natural ingredients to reduce the risk of irritation to your body.
The FemCap is a modern, easy-to-use alternative to the traditional diaphragm. It is made of a single piece of medical-grade silicone to reduce allergies and can be left in place for up to 48 hours. As your body moves and changes during intercourse, the soft silicone design conforms to your body, and removal is easy too with the built-in removal strap - unlike the diaphragm, the soft silicone FemCap won't cause abrasions when the time comes to remove it.
The FemCap is shaped like a sailor's hat, with a brim to prevent sperm from entering the cervix. FemCap has been proven to be over 92% effective in preventing pregnancy, when used in conjunction with a spermicide. The FemCap is also ideal if you think you may want to get pregnant in the near future, because unlike the Pill or the implant, the effects are instantly reversible simply by removing the FemCap.

- FemCap Review - love it Review by Betty K
The cap itself is neat, it has a little hoop on it that sits flat inside, but is used for removal. Much easier to use than my old diaphragm, sadly not available on the NHS yet, but it certainly should be. It is a neat size, fits perfectly and great for someone like me (peri-menopausal) with periods that are dwindling and going haywire!! (Posted on 25 April 2013)

- Low cervix and an above average partner don't mix well with the Femcap Review by Really wish this worked for us
With that mind, we were looking forward to trying something "alternative" to condoms. Both my partner and I prefer the natural feel (That's how mother nature intended right?) so both eager to give this a go.
I was able to insert it successfully from the second attempt onwards. Brilliant!
During intercourse, I didn't feel it. My partner did but he's on the larger side of average. It wasn't until the morning that he said that it was really uncomfortable for him and left him with a graze on his man parts. I was devastated! I contacted Femcap and they told me that we should use a water based lubricant. We tried that but it didn't make the slightest bit of difference. My partner was still sore and bleeding.
I sat down with my partner and talked about it, showed him the femcap as he asked what it looked like. He confirmed that the removal strap was causing him irritation.
I've not had children so opted for the small femcap. It fits fairly well. Much better than diaphragms (they're huge!). It is tricky to get out though, I was left bruised from trying to remove the cap. It took me around 20 minutes to get it out.
All in all I won't use this product again. It's a real shame as I had high hopes for it :'( (Posted on 16 June 2016)
- Intrusive Review by Rachel
Thank you for your review, I am sorry the Femmycup is not suitable for you, but I am pleased that the Caya Diaphragm http://www.stressnomore.co.uk/caya-contoured-diaphragm-92703.html is so much more comfortable for you and your husband. I will note this to our care team when customers ask about a suitable diaphragm for a low cervix.
