During this session, I guide you through the process of using a speculum, flashlight, and mirror to view your cervix. The session allows for plenty of time and directed breathing so that you can go at your own pace. You will also have the opportunity to discuss your sexual health history and ask any questions you may have about anatomy and sex. Self-exam is useful for understanding your state of health and observing what your cervix is communicating to you, such as fertility, stress, and imbalance. You will receive a speculum to take home with you and continue the journey of discovery.
(extra Speculums available for purchase at $10 each)
Most commonly known as a Mayan Vaginal Steam Bath, this process includes prayer/intention, selecting herbs for your bath, and sitting over a steaming bowl of those herbs. This ceremony offers two primary benefits. Physical benefits include detoxification and cleansing of the reproductive organs, increased blood flow to the area, and heightened sexual pleasure. From a spiritual perspective, the act of setting intentions allows you to reflect on your aspirations and aspects of your life that are blocking you from reaching those goals. Here is a blog entry on my own personal experience with Genital Steam bath.
The FemCap is a non-hormonal barrier method of birth control. The cap is part of the evolution of Cervical Caps which were popular in the 70’s and were recently discontinued from being manufactured. The FemCap is made from silicone and functions by covering the cervix, preventing ejaculate from entering the uterus. It is recommended that users add spermicide to increase it’s effectiveness.
Because the FemCap must be placed internally around the cervix, it requires careful guidance and patience to learn how to place it securely and confidently. During the fitting, you will learn how to locate your cervix with your fingers and also by using a speculum, flashlight, and mirror. I will determine your size which might require trying on more than one in order to ensure the best fit. I will manually check that the FemCap is completely covering your cervix and will gently pull on the handle to make sure it is snug and on correctly. I will also guide in you in removing the FemCap.
Once the size is determined, I will help you place the prescription order.
Cost is sliding scale: $50-$90 payable by cash or check only.
To get fitted for a FemCap, clients must have and bring with them a copy of a current normal pap result (within 9 months).
