Condoms

Posted by: tlc91199 on Sun Dec 9, 2007

When I first got married almost 15 years ago I swore that I would make sex as natural for the both of us as possible, so condoms were out and the pill was the bc of choice. About 6 years later and almost 40 pounds heavier, not to mention all the lovely hormonal ups and downs, I got preggy by choice. When the decision of bc came around again I had to go for condoms. It doesn't mess with your system, doesn't require the memory of an elephant to take every day, is relatively inexpensive, and comes in all kinds of interesting types. While I am still not as happy using them as opposed to not, they are more reliable and easy on the bod as opposed to the next most popular method of bc with hormonal control. I wont use an IUD as it doesn't prevent conception, just implantation, and for those sensitive to the pro-life issue it hits the mark. I considered a diaphragm but the cost, not to mention the trouble(kinda ruins spontaneity of sex when you have to run to the bathroom to stick it in) ruled that one out. Other than surgery on him or me, condoms by far have been the best choice for us!
