Diaphragms: Empowering Women

Diaphragms were invented in the mid 1800s and peeked in popularity around the 1930s. Then, with the rise of hormonal contraceptives and the pill, diaphragms fell into oblivion. Although they are one of the few female-controlled and extremely low-risk birth control options, many women view this form of birth control as old fashioned, or don't even know it exists.

The traditional diaphragm developed very little during its life, the circular device covers the cervix to prevent sperm from entering the uterus. Better and more comfortable springs and the transition to silicone over latex did improve on the basic functioning of the device.

The Janssen owned Ortho branded All-Flex diaphragm may have been totally removed from the market recently, and we understand that the Reflections diaphragm will soon be withdrawn as well.

Sizing across diaphragm brands is compatible. For example, an All-Flex user with a prescription for a 70mm diaphragm could use a 70mm Milex Omniflex diaphragm.

The Cooper Surgical owned Milex brand diaphragm is still in active production. Milex offers two diaphragm options, each with different spring mechanisms. The Arcing style spring folds in the middle across one axis, and the OmniFlex style is flexible and folds in all directions. The different spring mechanisms do not effect reliability, choosing between the two is a matter of personal preference. The OmniFlex style generally the more popular choice.

We currently distribute all sizes of the Milex OmniFlex and Milex Arcing diaphragms and the relevant fitting kits for clinical use as well as ContraGel Green natural contraceptive gel. Both are available for immediate shipping on a wholesale and retail basis.

Caya: A New-Age Diaphragm

Caya is the modern take on traditional diaphragms: the old fashion yet effective birth control method featuring a circular silicon dome inserted into the vaginal canal before intercourse to block sperm from entering the cervix.

 

There are seven typical diaphragm sizes, and when using a traditional diaphragm, a precise fitting is essential to effective use. Using the wrong size diaphragm results in drastically less effective contraception. The fact that diaphragm size changes when you gain or loose weight, give birth, or go through other vaginal procedures further complicates the process of ensuring you are using the correct size device.

 

The Caya diaphragm replaces this difficult sizing system with one single size device. Caya is not a one size fits all diaphragm. Rather, once confirming you fall within the size range of 65mm to 80mm, you can use Caya without worrying about frequent refitting.

 

About 80% of women fit into the range of sizes that are compatible with Caya. Women who do not fit in this range must use either a traditional diaphragm or a cervical cap.

 

 

Single Size. Contoured Design.

The Caya diaphragm (called SLICs diaphragm during testing stages) created a new-age diaphragm revolution. Caya re-envisioned a perfect diaphragm, eliminating common complaints of difficulty removing the device and the need for extremely precise sizing.

 

Breakthroughs in design and technology resulted in a contoured shaped diaphragm, as opposed to the traditional circular diaphragm shape. This new shape conforms more accurately to the vaginal canal, is easier to use, more comfortable, and anatomically designed to fit a wide range of women. The rim of the Caya is feather light and easy to fold for insertion, yet flexible and strong enough to provide a secure fit.

 

Although an initial fitting is recommended, the Caya is available OTC (Over The Counter) in the EU. Diaphragm users who already know their size can easily replace their old diaphragms with Caya. For women who are can not find a health practitioner to fit them for a diaphragm or a Caya diaphragm, FemCap cervical cap is the only option that does not need to be sized at all.

Simplified Sizing For All Women

 

femcap sizing


With the FemCap, accessibility to a doctor trained in diaphragm sizing is no longer necessary. Diaphragm sizing is decided by the ever changing size of the vaginal cavity which can fluctuate as a woman gains or looses weight or exercises to achieve firmer muscle mass in the buttocks, lower abdomen and inner thigh area.

 

 

Since the FemCap sits on top of the cervix, its size is determined by the size of the cervix itself.

 

 

After puberty, a woman's cervix size corresponds to a 22mm FemCap unless she becomes pregnant. Two weeks after conception, the cervix dilates irreversibly. This is important because even if a women miscarries early in the pregnancy and perhaps is not even aware she conceived, her cervix size has changed and a 26mm FemCap is now necessary. Vaginal delivery once again 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 a Doctor for correct diaphragm sizing is not an option. Choose your size, order online, and you can start enjoying natural birth control right away.
