How do I use a cervical shield?
A woman should first put spermicide in it and then insert it into her vagina before sex. It must stay in place for at least 8 hours after intercourse.
The shield has a loop on it to help with removal. You must take it out within 48 hours in order to avoid getting toxic shock syndrome.
