What are the Pro’s of using a diaphragm?It can be discretely carried in your pocket or purse. It can be used during breastfeeding without risk of affecting your baby. It usually can’t be felt by you or your partner. It has no effect on a woman's natural hormones unlike other methods. It is immediately effective and reversible. There is no interruption of sex play and can be inserted up to 6 hours ahead of time.What are the cons associated with using a diaphragm?
While I do think that the diaphragm is a great method of protection, the only downfall is that it in order for it to be effective it must be used in conjunction with spermicide. If you are curious as to why I feel this way I suggest you watch my video on spermicide and check out my article on the subject.
That said if you plan on having sex again within a three hour span of time you need to add more sprermicide. *
While it’s still up for debate some people suggest that it cannot be used during your period * may be difficult for some women to insert (again that just takes practice) * may be pushed out of place due to heavy thrusting, and certain sexual positions *

must be in place every time a woman has vaginal intercourse and used in conjunction with spermicide *
may need to be refitted due to giving birth or weight change.

Are there any side effects associated with using a diaphragm? Fortunately most women can use the diaphragm without any issues arising. Serious problems are very rare and not that common.

But some women may experience these side effects; *
Frequent urinary tract infections. To avoid infection, urinate before inserting the diaphragm and after intercourse which will help to flush out any bacteria from the urethra. If you get frequent bladder infections, ask your health care provider to check to see if your diaphragm fits correctly.

Vaginal irritation; this can be a sign of an allergy to latex or spermicide. If you have a mild reaction stop using the diaphragm until you speak with your health care provider. It’s always better to be safe then sorry.

As with other methods of protection I have covered I want to stress that for some of you this may work and for some of you it may not. However, since choosing a method of protection that is right for you is a very important step in being sexually active and responsible I do feel it necessary to cover all of the options so you can see what’s available, how to use it and make sure your using it correctly which will of course increase the chances of it’s effectiveness. Hope that helped
