What is a diaphragm ?


Diaphragms are a barrier method of contraception designed to block sperm from reaching and fertilizing the egg. They are inserted into the vagina before sexual intercourse and cover the cervix, creating a physical barrier that prevents sperm from entering the uterus. Diaphragms are a reliable and non-hormonal birth control method, giving individuals greater control over their reproductive health.


You have the autonomy to decide when to employ a diaphragm, unlike birth control pills or an IUD that remain in your body constantly. Its usage involves inserting it before engaging in sexual activity.

This reusable and portable contraceptive is compact, stored within a convenient clamshell container, making it easily storable in a purse or backpack. The diaphragm offers unique benefits to women dealing with medical conditions, undergoing cancer treatments, or breastfeeding mothers. It serves as an excellent hormone-free birth control option in these circumstances.


Is diaphragm birth control easy to insert?

The prospect of inserting a diaphragm may seem daunting, but the reality is that it's simpler than you might imagine. If you're already familiar with using a menstrual cup, inserting a diaphragm will feel quite natural. In fact, approximately 80% of women successfully insert it by following the instructions provided in the packaging. If you encounter any challenges, your healthcare provider can also offer guidance on the correct insertion technique.

  1. Apply a water-based contraceptive gel to the diaphragm.
  2. Insert it before sexual activity to ensure it adequately covers the cervix.
  3. Keep Caya in place for at least 6 hours after intercourse.
  4. Clean it with soap and water before storing or reusing.
