FSRH | Family planning bits and bobs

There have been several new guidelines and statements released from the FSRH in the last few weeks, which have some relevance to us.

One size contraceptive diaphragm (Caya)

This new guideline discusses a new diaphragm that women can buy over the counter, or online. I suspect that few women will be using this, but as they don’t need to see a doctor or nurse to get it – you wouldn’t know if they were without asking.

Despite being ‘one size fits all’ it actually only fits about 80% of women and it seems that there is no obvious way for the woman to know if it actually fits her well or not, without it being checked by a fitter.
