When using a diaphragm or cervical cap for barrier contraception a spermicide or contraceptive gel MUST be used.
For generations Nonoxynol 9 was the active ingredient in 'traditional' spermicides, very very effective killing the sperm dead. Unfortunately it's so powerful that it can kill skin cells too which in some cases is noticed with an itchy sensation. This can be off putting during moments of intimacy and can cause users to turn away from barrier contraception.
By being a new, natural alternative to 'traditional' spermicides, Caya Gel makes barrier contraception an easier option for couples. Possible itchiness which can sometimes be casued by using traditional Nonoxynol 9 based spermicide can be a distraction just when pleasure should be the focus. And since both of you have your most sensitive parts exposed to the substance, opting for a natural alternative is twice as important
The Caya diaphragm comes in one single size. That doesn't mean it's one-size-fits-all, but it does accomodate 80% of women. If your traditional diaphragm size were to be 65, 70, 75 or 80mm then the Caya would work for you. Your GP, Midwife, Gyno' or your local Family Planning Association (FPA) clinic will be able to help you determine your correct diaphragm size.
