Caya is inserted before sex and should cover the cervix completely. The cervix is located between the posterior fornix and the niche of the symphysis pubis. During and after sex, Caya prevents the movement of sperm into the uterus. After intercourse, the Caya diaphragm must stay in place for at least 6 hours before safe removal. The single-size Caya, reusable diaphragm has an anatomically shaped, contoured rim that allows coverage of the cervix without a wedged fit in most women. Diaphragm guidelines recommend applying contraceptive gel for added protection and spreading gel on the rim to aid insertion. The Caya can be used over again for up to 2 years. After use of the Caya simply wash with soap and warm water and then place back into its container for future use.
Caya available for purchase at pharmacies across Canada, ask your pharmacist.
No contraceptive method can guarantee 100% safety from unwanted pregnancy. The Caya is just safe as the classic diaphragm. The more often you use the Caya, the more confident you will become in using this contraceptive method and the more safety this method will offer you.
Use your longest finger (usually the middle finger) to verify the correct position of the diaphragm:check whether the cup covers cervix and the removal dome located securely behind your pubic bone. If this is the case you are well protected.
After the first use, the Caya diaphragm should not be used for a period longer than 2 years.
