Diaphragm Gel - Contragel green
Gel to be used with diaphragms or cervical caps
Contragel green® covers as a physical barrier the cervix and reduces ph-value of the mucus. This gel should be inside the cavity of the diaphragm or cervical cap before inserting it inside the vagina. It is an additional security at the use of this barrier contraceptive method. Since 1972, Contragel geen® has a well established use and safety. Its previous brand name was Contracep Green from NVSH Netherlands.
The safe use as contraceptive method of a diaphragms or cervical cap is always related to be used together with a gel or crème. This gel or cream should be inside the cavity of the diaphragm or cervical cap before inserting this inside the vagina.This gel or cream is an additional security at the use of this barrier contraceptive method.The use of a diaphragm or cervical cap without a gel or cream is less safe.Before inserting the diaphragm or cervical cap into the vagina cavity, the gel should be given in a small volume of 3ml into the cavity of the diaphragm or cervical cap.Now, the diaphragm or cervical cap is folded and inserted into the vagina. Please assure that the cervix is dipped into this gel and the membrane covers the cervix.The cervix is covered and closed twice: by the silicone membrane and the gel.These two barriers are physical barriers. The chemical effect of this barrier is less important.Therefore the gel does not need to contain Nonoxynol-9. The gel today, as before, have been effective by the methylcellulose or other components that "closed" the cervix as a physical barrier.By this double barrier is prevented that sperm cells that by-passed the silicone barrier, not move upwards into the cervix and uterus.This effective use of Contragel Green and its components is the validated experience of this product since 1970 and the first testing and production under its first brand name CONTRACEP Green, by Dutch company NVSH / CDM at The Hague, Holland.
Waterbased gel – could be used as well with natural latex rubber condoms.
