Caya is a diaphragm which is a barrier method of contraception. It is made of silicone and comes in one size which fits the majority of women. It is inserted into the vagina before sex and you need to use it with a gel that kills sperm called spermicide. It's a bit tricky to get the hang of, but some women love it due to the control and lack of hormones.

Caya  

My very favorite thing about the Caya is that there really are no side effects. I am not putting anything into my body that is changing the way my body functions- I put it in, leave it in a while, and then I remove it. No hormones, nothing! I’ve been advised that while the Caya can be 80+% effective when used correctly, it’s best to use it with spermicide and condoms. It is tricky to insert the first few times but super easy to remove and I quickly got the hang of a quick and easy insertion! I did find it really difficult to find a pharmacy that sold the Caya (I guess they aren’t as popular now)- but all in all, it’s been fantastic so far! I love that my body gets to function as it normally would but that the Caya helps prevent pregnancy
