We use this with an ortho-all flex diaphragm. This is the only product I have tried. No burning, no UTI's (try urinating afterward.. it helps prevent them!), no adverse reactions for either of us. I put some in the diaphragm cup (only an applicator-full.. as it says in the directions) and then a little around the edges. I bought the extra strength because, hey, if you're going to try to prevent pregnancy this way, you might as well get the strongest stuff! I have not tried it by itself. It probably would be messier that way. This stays within the diaphragm for 6-8 hours until I remove it. After that only some of it continues to come out over the next day but it's no big deal. My husband prefers the diaphragm to using condoms, and I can prep awhile beforehand for spontaneity. More "natural" alternative to BC pills or other hormonal methods. It's messier but it just takes getting used to. As far as I know it has prevented pregnancy but no barrier method is perfect.

This is the birth control I have been searching for over the past years. I wonder why no one really advocates for spermicide. Well, I have tried everything....the shot, oral pills, nuvaring, etc. Recently I found out that I have Factor V which is a blood clot disorder. With that diagnosis, there is no option to take birth control with hormones. So i gave this a try and WE LOVE IT. I have not had any problems with burning or irritation and neither has he. As a matter of fact, it has really enhanced sex. No more needing to get the extra lube out. I would highly recommend giving it a try. You may want to try a small amount the first time (while using a back up method) to make sure it feels okay for you.

I've used the regular Gynol gel with a diaphragm for years. It's always been great, no irritation or adverse effects. But the extra strength product is so strong it irritates my husband and myself and has caused us to seek treatment for UTI. I don't know why there are different strengths for this product but I would highly recommend sticking with the regular strength gel.
