CAP   The cap is a small silicone dome (around the size of an egg cup) which has to be placed on the cervix before intercourse to prevent any sperm getting through. These are generally used by women who find it difficult to use a diaphragm because of the shape of their vagina. To work effectively the cap will need to be covered completely in spermicide before insertion and this should be reapplied 3 hours after sex if you want it again in the same session. Again, it needs to be left in for around 8 hours after sex to ensure no sperm gets through. It is 92-96% effective if used correctly.  

You will need to make an appointment with your doctor to be prescribed a cap as different women need ones of different sizes. You will also be taught how to insert if correctly at this appointment to avoid mistakes.  

Some women like this method as it can be put in in advance on the off chance they will have sex and so sexual activity does not need to be interrupted at the time. The cap protects against some STIs/STD's but not all so it is better used with a condom to make sure.
