How Do I Get a Cervical Cap? How Much Does a Cervical Cap Cost?
You must see a health care provider to get the cervical cap. Visit a Planned Parenthood health center, a clinic, or a private health care provider for a cervical cap.
When you go to your appointment, your provider will examine you to make sure you do not have a condition that would rule out using a cervical cap. Then your provider will help find the correct size for you and will give you information about using, inserting, and removing the cap. Your health care provider will give you a prescription for the cervical cap.
FemCap is available in three sizes:
- small, for women who have never been pregnant
- medium, for women who have had an abortion or a cesarean delivery
- large, for women who have given birth vaginally
Cervical caps may be purchased at a drugstore or clinic with a prescription. An examination costs from $50 to $200. Cervical caps average from $60 to $75. Spermicide jelly or cream costs about $8 to $17 a kit.
Planned Parenthood works to make health care accessible and affordable. Some health centers are able to charge according to income. Most accept health insurance. If you qualify, Medicaid or other state programs may lower your health care costs.
Call your local Planned Parenthood health center to get specific information on costs.
