DIAPHRAGM   The diaphragm is a large (about the size of your hand) cup- like piece of silicone. It should be placed in your vagina before sex so it will prevent sperm from getting to your cervix and being able to fertilise an egg. You need to coat the diaphragm fully with spermicide to ensure you are protected against pregnancy. It should be left in for at least 8 hours after sex and more spermicide should be applied after 3 hours if you wish to have sex again the same session. After removing you will need to wash and dry it before placing it back in its box. It is around 92-96% effective if used correctly.  

You will need an appointment with your doctor before you get a diaphragm as there are different sizes available and it needs to be assessed which one is right for you- after all, all women are different. In this appointment you will also be shown how to position it so it is in the right place, if you do not learn this then chances are you may do it wrong.  

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 diaphragm protects against some STIs but not all so it is better used with a condom to make sure.
