Anyone here use VCF?
DD is 9m, still EBF and still no AF for me...the mini pill affected my supply so I had to stop taking it, my OB advised me to just use condoms until DD weans but neither DH or I like condoms.

We currently use VCF but I read its only 74-90% effective, which scares me because we already have 2 under 2 (well, my oldest just turned 2)

So, anyone here use it? Have any stories to tell? Or any other options out there? Kinda weird not to be TTC to be honest! :giggle2:

I used it, with condoms for a few years. But really no amount of people posting on here changes the facts. It's not 100%. I would use condoms and watch your cycle closely.

A cervical mucus-only method of NFP is very effective even before your first post-partum AF.

Re: Anyone here use VCF?
Yes I've used VCF. We used the vcf or condoms for 2 years. Loved that the vcf wasn't messy at all, and neither person could feel it. However..... I now have a 4 mo VCF baby :giggle: So it worked for a while for us, but in the end it didn't do it's job.

To be fair I'm almost certain that I ovulated the same day as dtd, so that is probably why.

Vaginal contraception film

I had a bad experience I will share. dh (bf at the time) didnt like contraceptives. yikes! so one time I used it unbeknownst to him and he was pumping harder than he otherwise would have, and he got the stuff in his urethra. and he was pretty mad and he said it was very painful. he made a huge deal over it and that was the end of the vcf.

Re: Anyone here use VCF?
we use the foam not the film....not pregnant yet! LOL! I wanted something less invasive, non hormonal, and non surgical. I feel that if I got pregnant while using this, then it was God will.....although my husband wouldn't think so! LOL!

We use OPK's and try to avoid during the surges. (notice the word "try")
