The FemCap is woman-controlled and can be applied from 15 minutes up to 40 hours before intercourse. The FemCap does not interrupt spontaneity or reduce sexual pleasure to either partner. In fact neither partner can feel the FemCap during intercourse.
Your clinician will determine which size you need based on your obstetrical history. Women who have NEVER been pregnant will use the 22mm FemCap; women who miscarried, had termination (even after two weeks of pregnancy), or had caesarian section will use the 26mm FemCap; women who have had a vaginal delivery will use the 30mm FemCap. If there is a question or doubt of whether you have ever been pregnant, it is best to use the 26mm FemCap. Your health care provider should be consulted to determine the size that’s best for you.
