How do you define “NOT good with condoms”?

Ouch, I’m sorry. Does this have something to do with your insurance? I had to leave abroad for a month and had to switch pills in between so I talked to my insurance and they allowed my pharmacy to send it all earlier. Good luck!

Go to your doctor and get on the pill for a month or two.  Then switch back to the Nuvaring.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Edit: You could also go to Planned Parenthood and see if you can get birth control there.

Call your doctor and explain things– they have freebies they can give out for situations like these.

Call your doctor and see if you can get a sample. In the meantime talk to your insurance company and find a new pharmacy. Been on Nuvaring for over 8 years and never had this problem. In fact I got my prescription 5 days before it was due last week.

You really have tons of options before you go about compromising your BC, provided you’re in a decent-sized city or can get to one. Call your doctor, call Planned Parenthood, call other doctors and OBGYNs. I swear, someone, somewhere, will be able to help you out. 

But straight up, your man’s confused by the “physics” of condoms? Like, what goes where? I am confused by the physics of his physics.

Do you use the ring regularly with the breaks in between? Or continuously to skip your periods? You could consider shifting to either before the wedding so your schedule is different and you might still be protected. I’d check your calendar and see if it works out.

EDIT: Oh scratch that! Using it continuously would require you to be able to pick it up a few days early. Dang pharmacy. :/

@cyneswith:Our sex ed consisted of “Sex will kill you if you’re not married.” I got a good laugh out of that. Thanks Laughing Perhaps it’s not a size or friction issue. Maybe the decreased sensitivity makes it confusing for him to “find things” just by feeling around. If that’s the case all he needs to do is look. Happens to the best of us. You’re not gonna hit the target EVERY time. ๐Ÿ™‚

@cyneswith: That’s either a lube problem or a condom size problem. If it’s like he physically can’t fit in, try using some water-based lube and making sure you’re turned on enough. Condoms can definitely change the lubrication situation – natural or unnatural – so adjust accordingly. If the condom is slipping off, you probably need a smaller (or rarely, a bigger) condom, and to make sure that he’s putting it on correctly. That’s more common that you’d think, even among guys who claim to know what they’re doing. When I teach sex ed, I always recommend monitoring and checking the condom-application even if you’re not the one wearing it. 

Condoms: off topic, but important! Important! People really need to be able to use condoms, because you still want to be able to have sex sometimes. Amazing trip to Paris? Forgot your shit at home? Oh shit, no! That never happened to me!

Anyway, I know you’re going to find your preferred BC anyway if you’re proactive, dude. Make a couple of phone calls. One ring to rule them all, etc.

@cyneswith: Practice putting condoms on a banana or cucumber.  I usually put the condom on Darling Husband (really sexy-like, usually with a little bit of a hand job or oral before putting it on…) and sometimes I’ll get it all turned inside out at first so I can’t unroll it, but with practice it’s easier.  Oh well!!

If he’s having problems getting it in with a condom on, why not guide him in using your hands?  I do that all the time so that Darling Husband doesn’t have to just poke around down there until he finds the right spot cause that’s a mood killer… ๐Ÿ™‚
