  1. contraceptive diaphragm

    A contraceptive diaphragm is a dome-shaped, flexible, silicone cup that is filled with spermicide and placed inside the vagina, over the cervix, to prevent pregnancy. It acts as a physical barrier to block sperm from reaching the uterus and also releases spermicide to kill or immobilize sperm. It is a form of barrier method contraceptive and was designed for temporary and reusable use. Its effectiveness is largely dependent on correct usage, including proper placement, consistent use, and combination with spermicide.
