That's it really. Looking for a short term solution until I get coil fitted at the end of the month.

Really don't get on with condoms so thought about the sponge, no idea where to buy it, preferably not online unless its quick as I am away this weekend.

I don't think they're readily available any more. With a 20% failure rte if you've previously had a child and only a short while to go until your coil fitting, could you put up with condoms, or go non-PIV for a little while?

Yes, from what I've heard it has been pretty much ditched because of high failure rate. It's only three weeks. Are condoms really that dire?

Jeez 20%... That's like 1 in 5 fucks sake

Condoms it is.
