What if I'm having trouble getting the cervical cap in or out?

I can’t get the cervical cap in (or out) easily.

If you’re new to the cervical cap, check out our “how to.” Practice a little more and do so when it’s not the heat of the moment. Hopefully you’ll soon find it easy to use.

Still not working?

If you still find it hard to use after a bit of practice, you might want consult your healthcare provider or try a new method. If you really want to stick with a barrier method, check out one that you don’t have to insert, like male condoms or female condoms. Or check out a method you can “forget about” for a while, like the IUD, implant, ring or patch.
