Traditional Milex Diaphragm

Diaphragms were once a go-to method of contraception. Effective, discreet (unlike a condom!), comfortable, and side-effect free, chances are if you ask your mother or grandmother about birth control — this is what they used. It was a simple concept with outstanding results. Diaphragms cover the cervix and blocking sperm from entering the uterus, preventing pregnacy. However, as pharmaceutical birth control swept over the world diaphragms fell off the map.

 

The rubbery silicone cap and circular shape looked old fashioned and intimidating. The need for a trained medical professional to asses your size meant that doctors need to be motivated to promote them. As quick and easy contraception became the norm, many doctors simply stopped mentioning diaphragms as an option. As a result, the number one diaphragm supplier, Ortho Johnson, makers of the All-Flex diaphragm, completed ceased production in 2014.

 

However we now see the post-modern woman taking back control of their birth control experience. Women don't want the side effects and health risks of hormonal birth control, and are crying out for an effective and natural birth control. The old fashion diaphragm is just the ticket. Although finding someone to fit you for a diaphragm, and finding a pharmacy that can fill a diaphragm prescription, can be daunting, today's health-conscious women are up for the task.

Diaphragm Sizing

 

The biggest issue with using a diaphragm is that there are 7 specific sizes, and you need to be fit by a trained health care professional to find out which size you need to purchase. Using the wrong size diaphragm decreases the effectiveness tremendously; simply guessing your size is very risky. Additionally, diaphragm sizes change after childbirth, when you gain or loose a significant amount of weight, or after some vaginal procedures. However, the precise fitting system does have it's benefits. When you correctly use your specific size diaphragm, the effectiveness rate of diaphragms is a whopping 94%.

 

Doctors, midwives, and nurses can easily learn fit a diaphragm. Your health care provider will simply use a fitting kit (sold on this site) to test which size diaphragm snuggly, yet comfortably, fits within your vaginal canal. At the fitting appointment you will also learn how to insert and remove the diaphragm, and how to make sure your cervix is completely covered by the silicon dome.

 

After your fitting, you will walk out with a diaphragm prescription which includes your size. Diaphragms are available without a doctor's prescription in the EU, and can be ordered online here.

Milex OmniFelx VS. Milex Arching Design

 

Diaphragms are currently produced by Cooper Surgical, who own the Milex brand diaphragm. Milex offers two diaphragm options, each with different spring mechanisms. The Arcing style spring folds in the middle across one axis, and the OmniFlex style is flexible and folds in all directions.

 

The different spring mechanisms do not effect reliability, choosing between the two is a matter of personal preference. The OmniFlex style generally the more popular choice.
