Rubber diaphragm, Europe, 1920-1950
The diaphragm is a form of barrier contraception. The diaphragm is inserted by the woman before sex. It sits over the cervix to act as a barrier to sperm entering the uterus. Diaphragms come in different sizes. They are initially fitted by a physician. This establishes the shape of the cervix and the size and type of diaphragm required.
