Accordingly, are cervical caps over the counter?
You can get spermicidal gels and creams over-the-counter at drugstores. Sharing is caring, but not when it comes to cervical caps! They're made to fit you and only you.
One may also ask, when should a cervical cap be replaced? Yes. You should get a new cervical cap about once a year. Also, after childbirth or if you feel that the cervical cap does not fit well, you probably need to get a new cap.
In this way, how much does the cervical cap cost?
Office visits to obtain a prescription for a cervical cap range from $50 to $200, the cap costs between $15 and $50 dollars and spermicidal jellies, foams, or creams range from $7 to $18 dollars per package. The cervical cap can last up to two years.
Does a cervical cap prevent STDs?
The cervical cap does not protect against STDs. Couples having sex must always use condoms along with the cervical cap to protect against these infections. Abstinence (not having sex) is the only method that always prevents pregnancy and STDs.
