Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9936007A1] This invention is an improvement disposable cervical cap (10) having a thin walled, flexible, and pliant dome (12) with an integrally molded flexible annular rim (18). The cervical cap (10) further includes a thin form assuming substantially frusta conical skirt (20) that has an inner, an outer surface and extends from the annular rim opposite the dome. The form assuming flange aids in allowing women with unique anatomy characteristics to utilize a cervical cap for contraception, while preventing the transfer of diseases by sufficiently covering the tissue of the cervix.
