Caya is a new barrier device.
What is Caya ?
Caya® is a single size silicone
diaphragm with an oval contoured
shape, and a flexible rim. The
manufacturer recommends using a
lactic-acid-containing gel as a
lubricant. The gel is applied to the
diaphragm, the rim is squeezed and
the diaphragm is inserted into the
vagina. It sits across the vagina and
covers the cervix. One end of the
rim sits high up behind the cervix and
the other tucks under the pubic bone
in front.
It requires consistent and careful
use to be effective
