I have just now put in the TODAY sponge for the first time and I feel super squeamish! It's bothering me so much that I am thinking of wrenching it out right away but am trying to get used to it.
It's not that I can actually FEEL it....I believe that I have inserted it correctly, but I THINK that I can feel it. The idea if it is making me feel woozy. I think it's because it is a weird looking contraption and quite big and filled with sudsy spermacide and most of all has a thick strap...aagh! I am a squeamish type person anyway. I refuse blood tests! Sometimes even tampons make me feel weird if I think about them in there but it helps that there is an applicator. The sponge is worse in that you have to put it up there yourself...and I generally dislike how it feels in there anyhow.
Please help with any advice. I'm going to have to grow to like it as my boyfriend gets nothing out of condoms, I am not into using the pill right now and the sponge is relatively easily available and convenient to use...if ONLY I can start to bear it!
