AllyCRN:  Asking a pharmacist is probably the best start.  They can order stuff in for you.

AllyCRN:  spermicide isn’t popular bc it’s no longer considered very effectibe. If you can’t use hormonal BC, try an IUD.

AllyCRN:  I have used a few types and I will **TMI** review them for you! Like you two, we also used them with condoms. We chose this because at the time I lacked any health insurance and couldn’t go to the doctor to obtain other methods. The first one I tried was this. At first, it was a little rough, literally. You have to fold up the sheets and place them inside yourself, which isn’t too hard if you use tampons and are used to that sort of thing. However, it feels like a piece of paper at first! But you have to be quick or else the strip will begin to melt on your fingers. The next method was 100x better. This was easy to put in, painless, and you don’t feel it at all. I do remember that you have to leave it in for a certain amount of time after use for effectiveness and can leave it in for about a day before it MUST be removed, which is nice for multiple uses. Overall, yes, I’m sure these methods aren’t as awesome as other methods, but they worked for us! Good luck OP!

AllyCRN:  I don’t believe they are reusable, but we bought ours from Walmart for $10, which is slightly better then $16 though still steep, I’ll admit. I don’t remember the percentage, but if I come across it I will let you know.
