Is it normal that I keep getting urinary tract infections from the diaphragm?
updated over 3 years ago

Some women do get urinary tract infections from using the diaphragm. It might help if you pee before inserting the diaphragm and after you have sex. You might also check with your doctor to make sure your diaphragm fits correctly.

Still not working?

If you’re still having UTIs and want to switch methods, you might want to consider a method you don’t have to insert yourself each time you have sex. You might try the implant, patch, IUD, pill, or shot.

Try a different method
