Barrier Contraceptive/Femcap/Cervical Cap/Lea's Shield

I am considering switching to a barrier contraceptive. Has anyone had any experience and can offer any advice?

Re: Barrier Contraceptive/Femcap/Cervical Cap/Lea's Shield

My sister had the cervical cap. At the doctor's office they told her to practice putting it in herself and she was in there for 45 minutes trying to get it in correctly. She finally came out of the room in tears and asked the nurse to show her again.

She told me that story over 10 years ago. As far as I know, she is still using it.

SO it has a learing curve but good acceptance once you figure it out.
