Yes, you do.
I have a cervical cap, which I like a lot better than I liked the diaphragm that I used to have. psychologically it isn't as fun as unprotected sex, but maybe that's just as well right now....
What I like about it is: the diaphragm was big, and it hurt me. The cap can be put in ahead of time, and you don't need to use extra spermicide if it's been in for a few hours, or between "rounds." and, it is a true barrier method, while the diaphragm is mostly a way of holding spermicide in the right place.
They used to say, wear the cap all the time except when you have your moon, which is probably why people have had problems with irregular pap smears, statistically.... I put it on and take it off like a diaphragm, and have no problems. It's a little harder to learn to put on, but worth it, I think. Neither of us ever feel the thing.
