FemCap: Advanced Contraception and Menstrual Hygiene Products

Dr. Alfred Shihata, President & CEO
Due to a lack of safe alternatives, women suffer silently from the side effects of hormonal birth control and the inconvenience of current menstrual hygiene products. Hormonal contraceptives, despite their ability to prevent pregnancy, come with many side effects. Some of the more serious side effects include stroke, heart attack or even death in otherwise healthy women. Hormonal contraceptives can also cause weight gain, a decrease of libido, blood clots, etc. Observing these adversities caused by hormonal contraception over a span of 35 years, Dr. Alfred Shihata was inspired to invent the FemCap. Dr. Shihata’s objective was clear: to entirely avoid dangerous side-effects while fulfilling the unmet needs of safer birth control. The patented, award-winning, FDA approved FemCap is a woman-controlled, safe, and effective alternative to the pill, the patch, intrauterine devices (IUDs), and the condom. Extensive clinical trials indicate that the FemCap has no known local or systemic side effects to the user. It is soft, non-invasive, totally harmless, and does not interfere with sexual desire or pleasure for either partner.
Shaped like a sailor’s hat, FemCap is designed to cover the cervix during sexual activity, preventing sperm from reaching the cervix. A woman must insert the FemCap and place it over her cervix before sexual arousal. It can be worn 15 minutes to several hours before sexual arousal and stay in place for up to 40 hours. The device must remain inserted for at least 6 hours after intercourse to avoid the possibility of live sperm causing conception. With practice, insertion becomes as easy as inserting a tampon and removal is facilitated by the integral removal strap incorporated in the design. FemCap can remain in place for repeated intercourse during the span of 2 days; however, it should be removed at least every 48 hours for cleaning even if no intercourse has taken place.
FemCap comes in three sizes in accordance with the diameter of the cervix, and the elasticity of the vagina that varies considerably among women. The most commonly used FemCap is the 22 mm (small), which is designed for women who have never been pregnant. The 26 mm(medium) size is for women who have delivered through C-section or have experienced a miscarriage or abortion. The 30 mm (large)is designed for women who have previously given birth vaginally.
The Second Generation FemCap, when used correctly with spermicide, has been proven to be 92 percent successful in preventing pregnancy. FemCap does not hinder spontaneity or reduce sexual pleasure because it must be inserted before sexual arousal. The device is specifically designed with a wider brim to increase the surface contact between the FemCap and Vaginal walls. The brim enhances stability and effectiveness. It costs less than $8 per month with unlimited use for two years.
FemmyCycle, an FDA-approved, innovative, unique menstrual cup
With a patented no-spill design, FemmyCycle is easy to use and safe for both women and the environment. It is cost-effective, and most importantly, Femmycycle prevents the mess and leakage associated with other feminine sanitary products. With its ergonomic design, FemmyCycle can be removed with a single finger and has a larger capacity than other menstrual cups. FemmyCycle is the only menstrual cup that has three sizes based on the woman’s anatomy and physiology: Regular size for adult women who have a high-to- average level cervix (higher than three inches), Low-Cervix for women who have a low cervix, and teen size for women who have a petite body build.
“FemCap Inc. was founded with the intention to fulfill women’s basic unmet needs while being cost-effective and environmentally safe,” Dr. Shihata states. The level of affordability, combined with the added safety, effectiveness, and convenience, makes FemCap and FemmyCycle a great choice for women. “We are looking forward to joining forces with a larger company that has the infrastructure to elevate FemCap products to their maximum potential,” concludes Dr. Shihata.
