  • We use condoms and we both utterly hate them!! We haven't been able to afford for me to go to the doctor to see if they'll let me go back on the pill. I'm 48 and overweight, so I really doubt they will. Our only other option is for him to get snipped, which we can do at our local health dept for $500. We have a jar of coins to save up! lol

  • Diaphragm. They work without hormones and have no side effects. They never caused a stroke, infertility or PID; you won't gain weight, get depressed, or lose your libido; your periods won't be affected. They have never been the subject of class action lawsuits and are instantly reversible.
