Re: Hate condoms, pills, terrified to get Paragaurd

I hate condoms too. I found that the Thin Trojans were a little more tolerable and lots of lube. I don't like to do pills while BFing and DH doesn't want to NFP until I get an actual period (which happens around a month after completely stopping BFing). I don't have any other experience with anything but a couple friends have liked the copper IUD. I would never personally do an IUD or anything similar but that is just me, lol. I sucked it up with the condoms in between my DD and DS because I knew we would want the kids kind of close. After DS I went on the pill (after BFing was done) and then we decided to have another, lol. It seems like I have heard the pain from getting an IUD wasn't bad...maybe comparable to a Pap.

Re: Hate condoms, pills, terrified to get Paragaurd

My first IUD insertion hurt like heck (pre-baby). The second I didn't even feel (post baby). I mean, at all. No cramping, no bleeding, nothing. I took one of my post-operation Ibuprofen 30 minutes before my appointment. I believe they were 800mg. I'm not suggesting this, but I will definitely be do it again.

Have you considered a diaphragm?

We've used contraceptive film. You have to put it in 15 minutes prior so not good if you have lots of super spontaneous sex but works well for us.

Sponge? I don't know anything about it except that I know one woman who uses it effectively for both AF and BC

Re: Hate condoms, pills, terrified to get Paragaurd

I hate all condoms but these:

Sagami Original 002 Condom 12pcs (Japan Import) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000FQSLE6..._.eXKub1NGRCXR

They are thinner than a human hair!
Kinda $$ but so worth it. We don't get it on very often because DD is still cosleeping!

I tried the Paragard for a couple years and my periods were so heavy. I went from a 3 day light period to 7-8 day gush.

I liked my diaphragm a lot but I tossed it after I had my baby and can't find another at any pharmacy between DC and Richmond!

The amazon description for these is hilarious! But thanks for the suggestion. Definitely worth a try.

Reading this thread carefully bc I'm also done with hormones and am concerned about paraguard side effects.

Re: Hate condoms, pills, terrified to get Paragaurd

I loved my diaphragm that I had between my first and second. Well, loved being a relative term...combined with NFP, it was the most tolerable non-hormonal method lol Anywho, diaphragms are no longer available in pharmacies in the US The Ortho All-Flex has been discontinued, and the Milex are now only available for ordering by your ob's office it seems. I work in a pharmacy...it's been about a year since we've been able to order any kind of diaphragm. However, the Caya diaphragm was just recently approved by the FDA, and while it's still in search of a US distributor, it is available online from Canada or Europe (as is the Milex). I've ordered one, now waiting to see how long it takes to actually arrive The downside, however, is that it will not be covered by your insurance :P
