I need some help with effective contraception. Nothing is quite right for me.
I don't want to take any hormones any more as I am into healthy living and am convinced that they are NOT healthy for the body. I hate the sponge and anything one puts inside oneself. I have tried them and panicked terribly when I couldn't get it out.
My partner and I both HATE condoms. He feels nothing and I hate the feeling of them inside me.
On the bright side, my period is very regular. We have been using the rhythm method for about six months and it is going well but sometimes I get scared that I might make a mistake and get pregnant. I am in my late thirties and don't want kids. I would somehow manage if I DID get pregnant but really don't want to have to go down that road. I wouldn't want to have to decide on an abortion at my age and wouldn't want to have a baby that wasn't 100% desired. This is a toughie for me. I definitely do not want surgery to remove any of my organs either and my partner doesn't want to have a vasectomy. We just want better options. Please help.
