El capuchón cervical

El capuchón cervical es un instrumento de caucho flexible y en forma de taza, que la mujer llena de espermicida e introduce sobre el cuello uterino antes del acto sexual. Este instrumento permanece en su sitio varias horas después del coito. El capuchón se obtiene bajo prescripción médica, lo mide un profesional de la salud y es más caro que otros anticonceptivos de barrera como los condones.El capuchón cervical
