  • Is your DH/SO opposed to condoms or vasectomy? My ex got a vasectomy and I never had to worry about bc. Fabulous! Now that I'm no longer with him, it's an issue again...especially since I'm diabetic, I don't have too many options. Fortunately, my fiance' is wonderful and takes care of the bc so I don't have to go on anything.
