When would the Béa Treatment Kit be unsuitable for use?

In some cases, it could be medically unsafe to use the Béa Applicator and we recommend you visit your GP if you need support when trying to get pregnant. 

 

Do not use the device in the following circumstances:

Vaginal prolapse. If you have vaginal prolapse, it could be dangerous to attempt to insert the Béa Applicator and cervical cap through your vagina. You may need support from your GP for how to have a safe pregnancy. 

Hysterectomy. If you’ve had a hysterectomy (had your uterus removed), you would not be able to carry a pregnancy. The Béa Applicator will unfortunately not work for you. You should visit your GP to discuss alternative family forming options. 

Loss of both fallopian tubes. If you’ve lost both fallopian tubes, the sperm will not be able to reach an egg. The Béa Applicator will unfortunately not work for you. You should visit your GP to discuss fertility treatments you may be able to access. 

Colposcopy with biopsy or treatment in the last 3 months. Your doctor may advise you that your cervix needs time to heal after a colposcopy and it might not be safe for you to get pregnant until you have been given the all clear from your treating doctor. Therefore, it’s recommended to wait 3 months before using the Béa Applicator. 

Vaginal/cervical surgery within the last 3 months. It’s likely you’ll be advised to wait 3 months following vaginal surgery or cervical surgery before trying to conceive as it might not be safe for you to get pregnant. Therefore, it’s recommended to wait 3 months before using the Béa Applicator. 

Currently pregnant. The Béa Applicator is designed to help people get pregnant. If you’re already pregnant, it could be dangerous to attempt to insert the Béa Applicator and cervical cap.

Known silicone allergy. If you have a known silicone allergy, you should not use the Béa Applicator as the cervical cap is made from silicone. 

Vaginal irritations or lesions. The presence of vaginal irritations or lesions could be due to a bacterial infection and it would be recommended to see a GP for potential treatment before using the Béa Applicator.

 

If you have any of the above, you should get in touch with your GP about wanting to get pregnant and they can advise you on your next steps.
