I had the cervical cap for about 5 years and it was awesome. Unlike the diaphragm, you can leave the cap in for 48 hours and you don't need to add more goo per screw. My biggest problem was getting it out when I first learned to use it. It doesn't work for every cervix (mine is small and well-shaped ... "cute" is how the NP described it) but if you have the right shape, that little monster gets suctioned on tight.

When I was ovulating (something I could detect in my pre-perimenopausal days) I'd add a condom to the equation for those 2-3 days* but that's only 2-3 days. Not bad.

Bonus about cervical cap: if you're at the beginning or end of your period and just bleeding lightly, you can still have sex without any mess.

*or stick to procedures which did not involve penetration
