RDO Medical is proud to be the official distributor of the FemCap range of products in the UK, Ireland, Spain and Slovenia.
FemCap Inc. is a US company based in California which has been at the forefront of gynecological studies regarding barrier contraception and as a result is perfectly placed to apply that knowledge to design and manufacture a new industry changing cervical cap and the most innovative menstrual cup available.
The FemCap is non-hormonal, latex-free contraceptive device made of medical grade silicone rubber, FDA and CE Approved Cervical Cap as Supplied to the NHS. The FemCap is designed for women of childbearing age who wish to prevent or postpone pregnancy by preventing sperm from entering the cervix and the uterus.
As a cervical cap FemCap must be used in conjuntion with spermicide or contraceptive gel as a barrier contraceptive. Barrier contraception methods have enjoyed increased popularity due to the increase in women looking for hormone free, reversible contraception.
FemCap is stocked by many pharmacies who enjoy the benefits of repeat month on month purchases of spermicide and contraceptive gel by their customers.
The FemCap comes in three sizes and requires no fitting by a doctor, putting it in reach of many women who are not within easy reach of a gynaecological specialist..
The only exception to these sizing criteria is if a woman had a spontaneous miscarriage and/or she was not aware of it. In that case, she would need the 26mm FemCap. If the woman and her doctor are unsure, they should use the 26mm FemCap to be safe. If you have any doubts check out our FAQ's page on sizing or just contact us and our specialists can advise you of the correct sizing for your condition.
Following on from the success of the FemCap cervical cap which rewrote the book on barrier contraception for the 21st century, FemCap Inc have designed and just launched the FemmyCycle which this time rewrites the book on menstrual cups.
Where as the majority of menstrual cups were designed as nice thoughts by good-willed people who want to save the environment by reducing consumption of disposible, single use sanitary products, the FemmyCycle has been designed from a medical perspetive as a medical device. All of the grooves and angles on 'traditional' menstrual cups just serve to harbour bacteria or at the very least complicate efficient cleaning. The FemmyCycle meanwhile has been designed from durable medical grade silicone (similar to that of the FemCap) which won't scratch or rupture through regular use, is a smooth design to allow easier cleaning and can even be autoclaved.
Other major design points include a loop for very easy removal and a no-spill design. Users of 'traditional' menstrual cups have provided consistent feedback regarding their own personal experiences regarding spillage of menstrual fluids when removing a used menstrual cup. The FemmyCycle has been designed in an innovative way to avoid fluid spillage.
Both ingenious devices have been developed by FemCap Inc in Calafornia, USA who rely on RDO Medical for their marketing and distribution in the UK, Ireland, Spain and Slovenia.
