How the Diaphragm Is Used
If using a diaphragm piques your or your partner’s interest, you may want to discuss it with a gynecologist for a prescription. You may also ask for a demonstration or advice from a healthcare professional on how to properly insert it.
Before Putting It In…
Practice inserting the diaphragm in before intercourse. Wash your hands first to ensure cleanliness. You may also use a male condom as a backup the first few times it is used.
Check on your diaphragm’s condition. Look for any possible holes or tears just in case. You may also check if it has been overused and may no longer fit right if ever you have a had a diaphragm in the past.
