A prospective study of diaphragm users at the Family Planning Association of Victoria was undertaken. Despite the women being well motivated and instructed the pregnancy rate was high (24 per 100 woman years) and the continuation rate was only 35% at 12 months. Three-quarters of the women who became pregnant admitted that they did not use a diaphragm on every occasion. Therefore emphasis must be placed on the committed use of the diaphragm every time coitus occurs. Even so, the diaphragm does not appear to be a very safe method of contraception, and may be better suited to family spacing rather than as a method when high efficacy is required.
