Using WHAT to prevent getting pregnant? ....

I know these work great for periods. No leaking issues. People also use them for conception (fill with sperm). How is it different then a diaphragm? You could fill it with spermicidal lube and then have sex (you can have sex with them while on your period without leaking too). So howcome they are not used as BC? No bashing, just curious.



ETA I cant take hormones, and my body rejected my IUD twice.

Yep me too. I figure, if it works to keep stuff IN why wouldnt it work to keep stuff OUT? Especailly filled with spermicide.

Why bother with it if you are already using a spermicide?  Try talking to your OB/GYN about a cervical cap!  Or, they have a spermicidal sponge that is basically the EXACT same thing.  I usually find those over by the pregnancy tests.

Diaphrams are fitted, so I imagine they work better.  Also, I imagine the maker of these doesn't want to back it up for that purpose.

Yeah it's important the diaphragm is fitted so it fits tightly. I use one and my ob said if I ever lost more than 20 lbs to come in and get re fitted. Apparently things down there change sizes too!! Also I'm not sure what material the cups are made of but I think diaphragms are probably a bit less likely to be punctured or something.

I'm sure this might help SOME but maybe as others have said, it might not fit as well as a diaphragm or might not be AS effective since it isn't meant for that. I don't see how it wouldn't help at least a little though.
