non-latex condoms - need advice

I've been using the Durex Avanti because you can use them with oil-based lubricants - I use tea tree oil in a carrier oil a lot to combat persistent thrush (I've seen my GP about this, I'm just prone to it and I can keep it under control this way)

however they have now replaced Avanti with Avanti Ultima, which cannot be used with oil

I don't get on with pill, or Mirena and I really don't want to get pg again

does anyone use a good non-latex condom they can recommend? The ones I've looked at online seem terrifying, but then I am very repressed grin

Yes, we use the Avanti too but have always used with KY jelly, can you use this or does it not agree with you.

I follow sympto-thermal family planning, so but doing this I know when I ovulate and only have to use condoms for six days before and three days after ovulation. The rest of the time we can just use nothing.

Works for us!

I don't use oil as a lubricant, but I use it regularly to combat thrush like I said, so I imagine there will often be traces of oil down there even a couple of days after I've used it

I DO NOT WANT another baby. That method you use fanjolina sounds interesting (though it's making me want to call it Thermo-Nuclear planning already grin) - is it super-safe?

Passante unique is OK with oil-based lubricants. They are really sheer condoms with v good sensitivity.
