Contraceptive Diaphragm

This diaphragm is designed to be more comfortable and easier to use than standard diaphragms.

The reusable, one-size-fits-most SILCS diaphragm is made of silicone, which is more durable than traditional latex diaphragms—it will hold up to extreme temperatures and poor storage conditions common in developing countries. Because clinical guidelines recommend a diaphragm be used with contraceptive gel for increased protection, new studies also are looking at the diaphragm as a delivery method for microbicide gel—a topical vaginal product that could protect women from HIV and other STIs.
