Contraception – diaphragms and cervical caps

Written by Dr David Delvin, GP and family planning specialist

There are two main types of contraceptive caps:

* the diaphragm.
* the cervical cap.

Diaphragms are a good deal bigger than cervical caps – they’re about as wide as the palm of your hand. You put the diaphragm into your vagina before sex, positioning it so that it keeps sperms from getting anywhere near your cervix.

Cervical caps are much smaller – about the size of a small egg-cup. You have to put the cervical cap directly onto your cervix, so as to stop sperm getting in. Cervical caps are much less commonly used than diaphragms - they’re mainly for women who, because of the shape of their vaginas, find it difficult to keep a diaphragm in place.
