So....cap vs. diaphragm (oooh! I orignally had diagram! :LOL)
what's the diaphragm made of and both the cap and diaphragm need a spermicide?
Maybe I'll check out my local library for hygenia...
It doesn't alwatys kill the sperm. sometimes it just mames them. These less than healthy sperm can still cause a pregnancy but they haven't got everything they need which could cause miscarraige or a genetic flaw in the baby (which could be disabeling or life threatening.) I mean really. If there is a chance that tsome really persistant sperm is going to get to the egg then we want him to be prefect and whole.
I don't want to put anything in my body that kills something else. Antibiotics sometimes but that is it.
also some people have awful allergic reactions to spermacide. that will really kill the mood.

The IUD is a terrible form of BC IMO. IT doesn't prevent conception, but implantation. Many women are surprised to learn their heavy periods after getting the IUD "installed" are essentially m/cs every month.
|Forgive me for saying so. I mean no direct critisism, but I am a little stunned that ladies would be taking chemicals for BC while BFing.
In view of the fact that chemials are passed to the infant through BM, would not a non-chem option be wiser?
I'm probably going to get this thread moved to obscurity by saying so, but frankly I find both of these comments a bit judgemental. We were asked to share our BC methods not give our opinions regarding BC methods used by others.
