This is a pamphlet containing in rather concise form a statement concerning the most practical methods of contraception. The authors suggest for therapeutic contraception the prescribing of a mechanical barrier—a vaginal occlusive diaphragm (or cervical cap) to be used in conjunction with a spermicidal jelly or cream. It is pointed out that the method is not applicable to all cases. Alternative methods, when indicated, are generally those whereby spermicidal jelly is applied by means of a suitable applicator or the use of a condom.
