Or any other brand of sponge for that matter? I've been curious about it, but I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to get it out. Or that I wouldn't be able to get it in right. I don't know if they have anything else in my drug store, but I do know for a fact that they have sponges, I have to check.

Sorry but I do not practice and use contraceptives. I only used the natural method, the rhythm method. I have nothing against these contraceptives and I firmly believe it's the women's right to make a choice. Try looking in the net and you can find a lot of answers dealing with these sponges and diaphragm.

I haven't tried any contraceptives in the market from pills, injections or anything. I haven't tried any of that. My husband and I is using a natural control method or the calendar method. I guess natural is still the best and won't have any side effect to your body.

Doesn't that rule out 20 days out of a 30 day month, though?

I think that the sponge is a pretty good choice...there are instructions in the box that let you know how to get them in and out properly. They aren't hard to use. The diaphragm you get from a doctor. They fit you for it and will teach you how to get it in and out. Getting it in right is very important too. I have never used that method before though. There is shot that you can get every three months that is pretty good too. Some women even stop having their period while they are on it. That is just an extra perk..lol. Good luck..oh...I wouldn't advise not using anything at all...that is never a safe way to go. You never know what nature has planned..lol.

I've never used the sponge either, but I am interested in learning more about it. From what I understand it's not as effective as some other forms of birth control, but if used correctly it can be pretty reliable. I bought some at Walmart for around $15 for a 3 pack, but I haven't used them yet because I just got off of the Nuvaring. I'll let you know what I think whenever I do use them.

I've never used such things. But before you use them read the manual or consult with your gynecologist. Have a nice day!
