Product details

What is Gygel Contraceptive Jelly

Gygel is called a spermicidal contraceptive since it kills sperm. It should be used along with a barrier method of contraception, such as a vaginal diaphragm or cap, in order to prevent pregnancy.

Following sex, pregnancy may occur if a sperm travels up the vagina and through the entrance to the womb (cervix) and beyond, where it might fertilise an egg. By using a vaginal diaphragm or cap, access to the cervix is blocked, preventing the passage of sperm into the womb.

Spermicidal contraceptives such as Gygel will kill any sperm that may get round a diaphragm, and so will provide more effective contraception.

How to use Gygel Contraceptive Jelly

  • Extra gel may be inserted into the vagina using a Vaginal Applicator.

Use with a diaphragm

  • With clean hands put about two 2cm strips of gel on each side of your diaphragm.
  • Make sure you also spread it along the outside rim of your diaphragm to prevent any sperm from getting past the edge.

Use with a cap

  • Fill one-third of the cap with spermicide. Silicone caps have a groove between the dome and the rim and some gel should be placed there also. Do not put any spermicide around the rim as this will stop the cap from staying in place.
  • If using a diaphragm/cap this should be put in place inside the vagina before sex and left there for at least six hours after sex.
  • If you have sex again during this time, you must apply more Gygel or another spermicide without removing the diaphragm or cap
  • If you have sex 3 hours or more after inserting your diaphragm or cap you will need to insert some extra gel.

Warning: your diaphragm should not be left in your vagina for longer than 24 hours.

There is no need to wash your vagina (douching) after sex. However, if you wish to do so, you must wait for at least six hours after intercourse.
