Where can I get a diaphragm from these days?


#1

I used to get mine from my local family planning centre which is now shut down.
Thanks in advance for the help.

Hi @Lady_T
You will be able to buy diaphragms online, or get them via the NHS from a sexual health clinic or a pharmacy - just ask for the contraceptive diaphragm.
It is a good idea to get it fitted at a sexual health clinic to check size, although the newer ones claim to fit 80% of women.
You will also need to get some spermicide, which you will need to apply to each side of the diaphragm before inserting into your vagina.
