I scratched my cervix when taking out my cervical cap. Is that going to keep happening?

I scratched the surface of my cervix. Ouch.

Still not working?

If you want to try something else and 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, shot, ring, or patch.
