Caya is a diaphragm contraceptive. The cup is uniquely contoured in comparison with other diaphragms. When inserted, Caya blocks the cervix so sperm can’t reach the egg. A spermicide called Caya Gel is recommended for use with this diaphragm.
Nurx™ doesn’t carry Caya as a birth control option, but if you are interested in checking out a birth control pill for only $5 for your first pack, talk to our team today. Use the FAQs below to help you make informed decisions about what’s right for you.
