  • Spermicide foam and condoms together are over 99% effective, I remember learning in a college class.

  • yes. fine to use while nursing... can't recall a favorite brand, but for the love of pete, it is like 80% effective when used properly (IF I am remembering correctly). If you are not on the minipill, then you definitely need to wrap it up! liftstyles ultrathins are the most comfortable that I have found. or, any ultrathin... your choice of brands.
