I was refitted for a diaphragm at my 6 wk PP visit for baby #3.  After baby #2, I had a size 80.  This time, she gave me a 65.  Does that make sense?  I would think I would not shrink at all - especially that much.  I am about the same body weight that I was after #2 so that doesn't explain it.  I tested the smaller one and while it doesn't fall out on its own, I can pull it out without flexing the ring.  Makes me think it could easily slip out during sex.  Should I go back and try a refitting?

At the very least I would go back & just double check that the doctor gave you the right size. When I got my diaphragm, the doctor told me it had to be a perfect fit around your cervix otherwise an "oopsie" could happen & sperm could get in. Better safe than sorry ;)

Maybe it was a typo. Maybe she meant 85 but accidentally wrote 65.

Have you tried the 80 as well? How did it fit?


I would not use the smaller one, but get back to the doctor and have it fitted again! Better safe than pregnant..
