Contraceptive diaphragm

The contraceptive diaphragm is a barrier type of birth control like the condom or female condom. Made of soft latex, the diaphragm must be inserted carefuly after squeezing it into an arc. Then it springs against the walls of the vagina acting as a protection against pregnancy. It must not be left inside but removed within 24 hours. The contraceptive diagphragm can be used by washing it with warm soapy water. It offers some amount of protection against sexually transmitted diseases. But the woman is more prone to UTI. Also it might be uncomfortable if the wrong size of diaphragm is chosen.
