In brief: Wash, dry & check it
After you remove the cervical cap, wash it with mild soap and warm water. Allow it to air dry.
Be sure to examine the cervical cap regularly to look for small holes or weak spots by holding it up to the light. You can also fill the cup of the cervical cap with water and look for leaks. If you take good care of your cervical cap it may last about two years. The cervical cap is made of silicone.
