New non-hormonal latex-free contraceptive device.
The FemCap is made of silicone rubber, a non-allergenic, durable material which is easy to clean.
The FemCap exists in three sizes. The inner diameter of the rim determines its size. The smallest rim diameter (22mm) is intended for women who have NEVER been pregnant. The medium (26mm) cap is intended for women who have been pregnant even for 2 weeks and did not have a vaginal delivery. The largest (30mm) is intended for women who have had a vaginal delivery of a full-term baby.
The only exception to this rule, if a woman had a spontaneous miscarriage and/or she was not aware of it, in which case she should receive the 26mm FemCap. If the woman and her clinician are in doubt it is more appropriate to use the 26mm FemCap.
The FemCap is designed to conform to the anatomy of the cervix and the vagina to ensure maximum fit and comfort. The FemCap includes a brim, a dome, a groove between the dome and the brim, and a removal strap.
FemCap must be used with a spermicidal gel like the Contragel Green (see below).
