Ok, I know this isn't the right website to ask this question but can someone PLEASE either answer me or direct me to another forum that is for questions like this? I want to know if someone can recommend a form of birth control. I was on the patch for a long time and the whole time I was on it, I was getting stomach aches on a regular basis. When I stopped using it, they went away, so I'm looking for a birth control that is non-hormonal. The only problem is, neither my boyfriend nor I like how condoms feel. I heard about this one kind of birth control that is spermicide that comes in applicators...I don't know what it is called but I saw it on the Walgreens website and it's in a blue box. Does anyone know if this works? Anyway, I'm sorry this was so long, but can anyone please recommend something or direct me to a website that can? I would really appreciate your help. THANK YOU!!!

Plannedparenthood.org has info about all sorts of birth control and how effective they are. Spermicide alone is only about 80% effective, if I'm right. My mom was using those spermicide applicators when my sister was conceived (my mom was 37). Have you tried different kinds of condoms? There's a big difference in the feel. I always found that trojans were too big, lifestyles feel like rubber gloves, and durex were the best that I tried. You can also see about getting a diaphragm or cervical cap...those have to be fitted for you, so you will have to see a doctor for them. You could also see about an IUD, but I've heard they can make heavy periods worse.
