    Default Non-Hormonal Contraception

    Just wanting to know what you use for contraception (non-hormonal only please), how easy it is to use and how effective you feel it is.

    Condoms worked for us for two years before I got pregnant (which was planned).

    I got fitted for a diaphragm this week! Haven't used it yet but it's not difficult to insert. Only 84-94% accurate which sucks but it's better than nothing IMO. Could probably use withdrawal method to increase effectiveness?

    Me too. Still waiting on my script to be filled. Not difficult to insert, and I'm looking forward to trying it out.

    The ob/gyn said she only fits 2 a year now, as they are not that popular. I don't know why.

    So far a diaphragm is my preferred option. What does the doctor do to 'fit' one? How long do you have to wait fir it and how much is it?

    I got mine from Family Planning clinic. Mine was fitted by a nurse who took a history first, then did an examination (like when you're examined in labour) and the she put in a size she thought would suit, then checked it covered my cervix. I then had a go at taking it out. She gave me a sterilized one to use for a week and i have to go back to get a new one either the same size or try another size. Cost me $85
