In brief: At least 6 hours

Each time you have intercourse, check that the cervical cap is still covering the cervix.
You can leave the cap in place and insert more spermicide deep into your vagina. The cervical cap must stay in place six hours after the last intercourse. Do not leave the cervical cap in place for more than 48 hours.
