Milex Omniflex Diaphragms
The classic Milex Omnifelx diaphragms for reusable barrier contraceptive. A shallow, latex-free silicone membrane covers the round rim. The rim can be compressed across two axises for insertion. These diaphragms feature unique wide seal technology along with a distortion-free rim to provide increased suction for added protection. They are available in eight diameter sizes, from 60mm to 90mm, for a secure true fit. Sizing must be determined by a health professional trained in diaphragm fitting.
All diaphragms MUST be used with a spermicide or contraceptive gel. Milex diaphragms have a narrow skirt around the rim intended to hold gel in place. Because nonoxynol-9 spermicide often causes irritation, we often recommend using the all natural spermicide alternative ContraGel.
In order to ensure your diaphragm is securely hugging the walls of your vaginal canal, you will be fitted with the largest size that is comfortable for you. After you are fitted, you will be shown how to insert and remove the diaphragm. You also will learn how to check if it is placed properly and covering your cervix. An incorrectly placed diaphragm will increase the risk of a pregnancy occurring.
A refitting is necessary if:
- You gain or lose 10 pounds or more.
- You have pelvic surgery.
- You give birth or have an abortion.
- You have repeated urinary tract infections.
- You or your partner feel pain or pressure during sex.
Contraception With A Diaphragm
Diaphragms are an excellent barrier contraceptive choice. They offer contraceptive protection with minimal side effects, minimal waste, and a high level of effectiveness.
However, using your diaphragm correctly is critical, so learning exactly how to place it of utmost importance. Your vaginal muscles will have to be able to hold the diaphragm in place, and the cervix must be completely covered by the silicone membrane.
To maintain contraceptive effectiveness:
- Use only the correct size diaphragm. Do not guess your size.
- Always use spermicide or contraceptive gel.
- Apply more spermicide before additional acts of intercourse.
- Only remove your diaphragm six to eight hours after intercourse.
Do not wear your diaphragm for more than 24 hours.
We supply these diaphragms on the understanding that you, as our customer, are not our patient for whom we take responsibility for verifying the correct diaphragm size or instructing on correct use.
Cleaning Your Diaphragm
It is important to thoroughly wash and dry your diaphragm with regular hand soap after each use. Boiling is not necessary, but will provide a higher level of sterility. It is recommended to also clean your diaphragm prior to insertion in case it was exposed to any bacteria between usages. Pjur or NatraCare wipes, or Pjur cleansing spray, are convenient tools for making sure your diaphragm is completely clean.
Rare cases of TSS have been reported with diaphragm use. Therefore, if you have a history of TSS should not use a diaphragm. If you have a silicone allergy, do not use this diaphragm. Sensitivity to nonoxynol-9 spermicide is a common contraindication, so if you or your partner has any adverse reaction, ContraGel natural spermicide alternative may be a better choice.
