Should I rest after using the Béa Applicator?

The Applicator is designed to help insert a cervical cap through the vagina to hold
semen against the cervix for an extended period of time. When the cervical cap is in place, you should go about your day as normal until it’s time to take it out. 

 

Here are some common questions we get about what you can do while the cervical cap is in place:

Q: Should I rest while the cervical cap is in place?
A: There’s no need to rest (or to keep your legs elevated!) after using the Applicator and inserting the cervical cap. 

 

Q: Can I go swimming after inserting the cervical cap?
A: No, you should not go swimming or take a bath while the cervical cap is in place. 

 

Q: Can I have intercourse after inserting the cervical cap?
A: No, you should not have intercourse or insert any sexual toys into the vagina while the cervical cap is in place.
