Contraceptive gel for use with natural latex rubber or silicone diaphragms and cervical caps.

Indication

Caya® Gel is a contraceptive gel for use with the diaphragm and cervical cap contraceptive methods. Caya® Gel increases the safety of these contraceptive methods. Their use without a contraceptive gel has been proved to be less safe.
Mode of action
Caya® forms, by means of the cellulose (gel-forming agent), an additional physical barrier in front of the cervix and lowers the pH of the vaginal fluid. The increased acidity and the viscosity of the gel have a motility inhibiting effect on the spermatozoa.

Application
Before inserting into the vagina, place about one teaspoonful (about 4 ml) of Caya® Gel in the diaphragm or cervical cap. Then follow the instructions for inserting the diaphragm or cervical cap. The vaginal applicator is used optionally if additional gel is to be introduced in front of the already inserted diaphragm (e.g. the new Caya® contoured diaphragm, EAN 4013273001243) if intercourse is repeated. The vaginal applicator is re-usable. However, it should be washed in warm water after each use.

Contraindications


There have been no reports of women experiencing side effects during the use of Caya® Gel. If any problems arise when using
Caya® Gel, please stop using it and consult your doctor or pharmacist.

Important note


Caya® Gel:
- offers NO protection against sexually transmitted diseases.
- IS NOT a safe contraceptive method when used alone without a mechanical barrier
- is soluble in water and compatible with natural latex rubber or polyurethane condoms.

Caya® Gel is identical to the Contracep® green manufactured from 1972 to 2002 and ContraGel® green available since 2005.

This lactic acid based composition was shown to be as safe as nonoxynol-9 containing products as long ago as 1989 (Dittrich 1989) in a comparative study of different diaphragm gels and creams, but was found to have a much lower potential to cause side effects.
