Non Hormonal Contraceptives and Barrier ContraceptionAre you ready for natural, safe, and pleasurable sex? Are you ready to release yourself from the endless side effects and long term health risks of hormonal birth control? Are you frustrated by mood-killing condoms? FemCap is your answer.

FemCap is a cervical cap made of medical grade, hypoallergenic silicone. It is small and easy to insert. No doctors fitting is necessary. Sizing is simply based off of obstetrical history.

The Fem Cap caps the cervix, and in conjunction with a contraceptive gel or spermicide, prevents sperm from entering the uterus. The gel reenforces the mechanical barrier of the FemCap, and the chemical spermicide, or natural spermicide alternatives, render the sperm impotent.



Top Five Reasons To Choose FemCap

1. Enjoy more pleasurable sex. The pill can effect sex drive and condoms break the intimacy of skin-to-skin sex. FemCap lets you have sex the way it was meant to be!

2. Does not interrupt spontaneity. FemCap is easy to use and can be inserted hours before intercourse. No fumbling with a condom and breaking the flow of the moment.

3. Environmentally Friendly. The reusable FemCap is made from a non-allergenic latex-free material. Good for you. Good for the world.

4. Stay Balanced. You don't want to be on medication for the greater part of your fertile life. Its just not natural. Femcap allows your fertility and menstrual cycle to fluctuate organically, without altering your internal balance. This also means that you can enjoy reliable hormone-free contraception while breastfeeding.

5. Simple Sizing. FemCap eliminates the problem of finding a doctor to fit your barrier contraceptive. The size you need is simply determined by your obstetrical history, so you can order your FemCap online today!



A Tighter Seal & Smaller Design Than Diaphragms

FemCap Cervical Cap For Barrier ContraceptionA cervical cap, as the name suggests, caps the cervix like a thimble capping the thumb. This produces a tight and secure seal preventing sperm from entering the uturus.

In contrast, a diaphragm sits inside the vaginal cavity and is held in place by muscular support from the sides of the vaginal cavity. The traditional diaphragm design can slip out of place, and if just one side moves too far inwards or outwards, the protective seal may be broken.

The contraceptive gel or spermicide that must be used in conjunction with the FemCap assists in creating a suction between the curved inner side of the FemCap and the protruding cervix.

Another befit of the FemCap is its small size. Diaphragms are around the size of the palm of your hand, and can be intimidating and unwieldy. A FemCap is about a third of the size of an average size diaphragm making it is much more user friendly.



Simplified Sizing For All Women

FemCap Cervical Cap For Barrier ContraceptionWith 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.



Risks And Disadvantages

FemCap Cervical Cap For Barrier ContraceptionThere are only a few disadvantages to using FemCap, and they are rarely serious enough to cause people to discontinue use.  First of all, planning is necessary before engaging in sexual intimacy when practicing contraception with FemCap becasue it must be inserted before being sexually aroused. Therefore, if you know you're going to have sex or are likely to have sex, take the time to insert it before hand so that spontaneity will not be interrupted.  

Also, because women are often unable to feel FemCap's presence, they may forget to remove it and leave it in for over 48 hours.This can lead to urinary tract infections.

In order to be effective, Fem-Cap must be used in conjunction with a contraceptive gel such as Gynol, Gygel or ContraGel Green.

A woman should not use FemCap if she has an infection in her vagina, cervix, or pelvic area or a cut or tear in her vagina or cervix.

Make sure to read the instruction manual thoroughly, including the removal advice, prior to using FemCap. And finally remember, no method of contraception can offer 100% reliability.



ContraGel: Enabling Effective Barrier Usage Without N-9

Contragel natural spermicide alternative Many couples are prevented from using barrier methods of contraception because of the simple fact that those barriers need an additional component of a spermicidal gel, and many report skin irritations as a result of spermicide usage. The active ingredient in most traditional spermicides, Nonoxynol 9, is a chemical that kills sperm on contact. Not surprisingly, a chemical that kills sperm can also cause unpleasant side effects on intimate areas.

ContraGel is a spermicide alternative that does not contain Nonoxynol 9 at all. Instead, it works in two ways. First the viscose consistency of the gel itself extends the physical seal of the diaphragm or cervical cap, trapping and preventing sperm from traveling into the uterus. Second, the low pH of ContraGel alters the cervical and vaginal fluids creating a hostile environment in which sperm quickly die .

The 60 gram tube of ContraGel typically provides 15-20 usages. These numbers are based on the typical requirements of three to four ml applied to diaphragms and cervical caps for each act of intercourse. Additional ContraGel should be applied to the FemCap with a finger or vaginal applicator if more then one act of intercourse occurs.

RDO Medical is the official UK and Eire distributor of ContraGel Green natural contraceptive gel. It is available for immediate shipping on a wholesale and retail basis.



Learn About The 6 -8 Days Each Cycle When FemCap Is Needed To Prevent Pregnancy

cyclotest can identify your fertility window The goal of barrier contraception is to prevent sperm from reaching and fertilizing an egg — but fertilization is biologically impossible unless a viable egg is present.

Natural Family Planning (NFP) and Fertility Awareness Method (FAM) identify when there is or is not an egg present, nullifying the need for contraceptives most of the month.

Sperm can live inside the womb for up to 5 days, and ovulation releases an egg which is able to be fertilized for one day. That six day span is referred to as the fertility window, and is the only time there is actually a real need for a barrier device.

Cyclotest uses Symptothermal fertility charting to identify that fertility window by using a daily basal body temperature (BBT) reading. Changes in the BBT readings help identify ovulation and form the fertility window.

With 99% reliability, why not let Cyclotest make your contraceptive decisions for you?
