Is it actually impossible to get my hands on a spermicide?

Went to FP clinic last month to be fitted for a diaphram. Doctor gave me a prescription for spermicide but said she thought there may be a problem with getting hold of it after a supply problem. This seems to be the case and I can't get the prescription for the spermicide anywhere. They don't know when it will be back in stock and it seems to be out of stock for quite some time.

According to FPC Doctor there is NO other spermicide I will be able to get my hands on.

So, this can't be the case can it? Where can I get it? Help! Diaphram is 'better than nothing' without it according to FPC doctor, but I need more protection than that!

I can find Gygel stuff online but it isnt that cheap - dont know the shipping charges though

I used to order it from the States, was cheaper and quicker.

You can get two Gynol II delivered from for £28, for example.

And that stuff nukes sperm from twenty paces.
