To ask where I can buy bigger condoms?
Fighternotalover · 29/10/2018 21:38
Long story short, the pill is making me crazy. Nobody can stand to be around me because my moods are so bad! ... including myself! I can't use a lot of contraception due to severe migraines and don't want to use others for various reasons.
So we are left with condoms. Only problem is standard ones don't fit the boyfriend and neither do the 'xl' ones from standard brands. Only ones we've found that do are from theyfit/myone and at almost £7 for 6, I can't afford to be having sex! 😂
Can anyone think of any brand etc that I may have forgotten? Or am I just going to have to give up sex (definitely not risking another baby after an almost 11lb one earlier this year....definitely not considering that for a long time!).

Can't help with condom advise as we gave up as DH has always said they don't fit,
But with the Pill can you go to doctors and ask for a different one, explain it's giving bad mood swings, there are lots of different types, I changed mine due to the sugar coating making me feel sick my SIL also changed her for other reasons so she was on a different type to me.
Worth asking doctors

I can see most if You don't believe me haha. It is true! He isn't just saying it because he doesn't want to wear a condom, he doesn't want another baby right now either. He is the one that wants me to stop taking the pill because I'm not very nice to be around at the mo!
You can see when he puts a normal condom on that the bit that rolls down is too tight. I definitely wouldn't want that when doing the deed! Very uncomfortable! And the risk of the condom splitting is much greater.
No sexual health clinic where I live as in a very small town. Will get my friend to take me next week so she can look after the giant baby when I'm in.
Thank you for sensible suggestions, will try skyns.
Oh and no correlation between dick size and baby size. We are both over 6ft and baby is very long so probably to do with that! He's in 9-12 month clothes at only 7 months due to his height.

DD1 was 8lb 8oz. DD2 was 10lb 2oz. They're in their 20s now & both around 5ft 3 ins tall. & petite. So big birth weight doesn't automatically = giant child
I think you're somehow starstruck by "wooooow he's got a big one" OP & that's why you're also relating this to other things.
Anyway as said, Skyns will do the job. If condom is tight then he's not putting it on correctly. You can blow up a condom like a balloon there's no way it doesn't fit him

@Fighternotalover I both believe you and understand you. DH is 'of girth' and normal size just don't work, they break, roll down, strangle him. The XL are better (he prefers Trojan) but still not great. Thankfully the pill works well for me so no need to use them anymore but it really is an issue for some!
