I have an 8 week old and dh is planning to get snipped sometime this year. In the meantime I don't want to take any chances of getting pg again. We had decided on condoms and spermicidal jelly, but we can't find any spermicide anywhere. We've checked 3 different stores and finally dh asked the pharmacist, and he said we had to special order it. What's up with that?? Has there been a recall or something?

I got it with no problems, but I got pg while using it. I found VCF (vaginal contriceptive film) at target and walmart and probably other drug stores. They also have Ensure inserts that are spermicical at all those locations. Not sure if that's exactly what you're looking for.

Are these things safe? Has anyone done some research?

Found some! 4th store I went to. Wow, wonder why it's so scarce all of a sudden? DH is coming home from his business trip tonight. ;-)
