Polyurethane are the way to go if you have to use condoms.

@MissCalifornia:  +1 to Durex skyn. They seriously are the next best thing to not using condoms. Fiance and I don’t use condoms, but we had to use some when I was on a round of antibiotics and I have a(self diagnosed) latex allergy.

Condoms might not be the way to go. Have you thought about other non-hormonal methods? There’s the sponge, although the failure rate is pretty high. You could get fitted for a cervical cap or diaphragm.

Since the two of you are planning to conceive in three-ish months anyway, I’d probably say try the pull-out method as long as your fiance has some control over when he ejaculates. I can’t believe I’m advocating the pull-out method, but in your case I think it might work for you.

OP maybe you could try them, I honestly don’t feel much of a difference when it comes to those. They are actually Polyisoprene, which is softer and much elastic than Polyurethane, and also less expensive! They are just as effective though.

Here is some really cool info about the SKYN.

Try Crown condoms. They are super thin and kind of tighter than other condoms. They don’t have that gross condom smell/sound. Also if you buy condoms online in bulk they are way cheaper than buying them at the store.

@ajillity81: Try the non-latex ones, and use lots of lube. Lube both on you, and on the inside of the condom for him– I’ve heard that helps some men to enjoy condom sex much more. Also, I guess you could try those bumpy condoms, or ones with other additional pleasure-inducing attachments?

Or you could combine fertility tracking with the pull-out method. If he knows his body well, that can actually work nicely– I have a friend who used that method with her ex for a few years. . . granted, he knew he had a very low sperm count, so it was probably safer than it is for most people.

Using condoms is gross, but it is better than the alternative. 😉

Since it’s only one month until you’re going to TTC, why not just have him pull out? It’s messy, but anything is better than condoms.

@ajillity81:  have you thought of getting something like a cervical cap or diaphram fitted? I know they are not very spontaneous to use but it might be a temporary solution to your problem. I’d also try a different brand of condom or go for a ribbed type for your pleasure!Tongue Out
