Gygel is colorless, orderless, and will not stain.
Gygel is effective when used in conjunction with barrier method of contraception such diaphragms or FemCap. When used together with these methods, the gel is effective on two levels.
First, the sticky consistency seals any gaps or cracks and provides additional suction to the barrier. Second, the chemical effect on sperm adds another layer of contraceptive protection, creating a safety net if any sperm should attempt to bypass the barrier.

Do not remove your diaphragm for at least six to eight hours after having sex, and in the case of additional acts of intercourse, make sure to re-apply Gygel using a vaginal applicator.
