Has Anyone use or hear anything about a Contraceptive Encare?

I was rejected by the doctor to have my tubes tied after I had my daughter. Said I have too much scar tissue for them to do it safely at my 6week check up, and I had too low of a blood count to have it done after delivery, so we tried to have hubby get a visctomy done and his insurance wont cover it. So we have been using condoms and man do they hurt after awhile....anyways. I was browsing the shelf at the store and came across the Encare box and was wondering How it does? is it good, too good to be true? not worth the money? in other words a help or hinder, my body can't handle another baby right now...and we think 2 kids is enough? Any word on Encare? anyone?

  • I haven't seen or used what you're talking about, but I'm allergic to latex and that allergy can come on at any time, so if it is starting to hurt you to use a condom, you might try going to latex free for a while and see if it helps.

  • I use it, but sometimes in addition to other birth control. It's a good protection aid.
