I cannot use hormonal bc since I had a blood clot from them so I use a diaphragm on my fertile days.  My doctor is great and let me stay there as long as I needed to practice putting it in the correct position.  BF says he can feel it but it doesn’t really bother him.

I tried the diaphragm and found it very uncomfortable– I couldn’t imagine having sex with it and not feeling it/him not feeling it. So we never actually tested it, I just wore it for a day after I got it and decided it wasn’t the thing for me. And it gave me some urinary tract irritation, just from trying it on my own (I have a sensitive urinary tract). BUT I know a lot of people do actually still use them, and like them!

Have you thought about the copper IUD? I don’t know if you live in the US (where the Paragard is the only one available) or another country, where there tend to be way more options for copper IUDs, but I have a Canadian copper IUD called the Flexi-T 300, and love it. If you’re interested, check out IUD Divas on Livejournal— lots of people posting about their experiences, including lots of positive ones– and lots of info.

Also, have you looked into the Femcap cervical cap? I almost got one before I decided to just go get an IUD.

I’ve never used a female condom, so I can’t speak to how that might be.
