Cervical Cap

Cervical caps are shallow, dome-shaped cups made of silicone. They’re off-white and about an inch and a half in diameter. You insert it into your vagina before sex and it covers your cervix to keeps sperm out of your uterus. There’s only one brand of cervical cap available in the U.S. today, and it’s called the FemCap. One super important thing to remember: You need to use a cervical cap with spermicide for it to be most effective.
