Just trying to explore my options and thought I'd see if anyone here had some feedback.
I'm 31, my partner is 36. No kids. We aren't married yet and he's not currently working so we really don't want to start a family. We're both okay if it does happen but really do want to prevent right now.
I've always had a mild latex allergy but we've been using latex condoms since last fall and it's been okay until my allergy manifested itself in a horrible UTI this weekend (hate antibiotics but in so much pain that I'll take them right now). So we realize we need another form of BC.
So, I'm allergic to latex and spermacide and turn into a raging bitch when I'm on the pill. Neither of us like the idea of an IUD and he doesn't trust FAM (at all, even though I chart and have very clear signs of ovulation and a regular schedule).
Are we missing a potential method? We can try non-latex condoms. Anyone use these and can tell me good things about them? I tried the Trojan ones several years ago and thought they were awful. I threw out the suggestion of abstinence and he chuckled and said he'd last longer on that than I would. :)
