Latex Allergy...

Posted by: FirefighterMissy on Mon Feb 26, 2007

It's always interesting for me, I've always known I have a severe latex allergy, but never connected that condoms were latex... until I tried them. That's an embarrasing one to explain to your partner "Um, I'm sorry, but I have to go to the Emergency Room now... I can't stop itching and I'm having difficulty breathing, but don't worry I should get there before my tounge starts to swell and my airway closes... oh that red rash all over my body, thats normal!"

And I also have high blood pressure, so that disqualifies me from hormone therapy [the pill, Depo]

But I discovered a diaphram and vaginal film of spermicide. I love it! Its cleaner and it gives me freedom. So after a few mishaps, I'm finally happy!
