    Does any one use these any more or is this just a relic from Sex in the City days??

    I am looking for non-hormonal birth control options and wondering why is seems no one uses them.

    Any experiences???

        I briefly considered a diaphragm, but opted for a Paragard instead. 90% effectiveness provided by a diaphragm wasn’t enough, where the Paragard offers 99% effectiveness. I thought the idea of having to mess with spermicides and insertions, as well as leaving it in place for the recommended six to eight hours after intercourse to be a nuisance.

          Hi, I’ve used them once and didn’t feel the most comfortable. But, I do have some girlfriends who use them.

          I’ve been with my IUD for over a year, and while it has hormones, I can’t say enough good things about it.
