You want to take a drug that might shrink your dick by 20%? … But secretly they’re thinking ‘man, can she really not take it?! Our lives would be so much easier!’ Which is fair enough if you don’t fully understand hormonal contraception
‘Yeah sex is cool but have you ever sat in darkness wondering why you’re not good enough’. The research is telling us that teenagers who use hormonal contraceptives are more likely to start taking antidepressants, or worse.
If you’re horny enough to be having more sex straight away; pausing for one sec to feel your diaphragm and get some more goo involved isn’t going to ruin the vibe. Or you just put on a silky dressing gown, saunter to the bathroom and leave them hanging, and return for more once you are spermicide’d up.
It’s important to understand that there is a learning curve when starting to use cervical barriers and that the most failures occur within the first few months of use. We urge members new to using a diaphragm or cap to use another effective method of contraception
Asking for a friend… I spoke to an experienced diaphragm fitter about sex toys, squirting and some very specific fingering methods. A reader recently got a diaphragm and had a few questions for us

What is it and why is this the contraception that every single woman should try? ‘I don’t know why more people aren’t using them’.. more pleasurable than condoms for myself and my partner
Most people have never heard of The Yellow Card Scheme – if you’ve experienced side effects from your contraception you should probably get to know, so that we can have a better picture and get better options
Which pill should you choose? How do you know which is best? All are not created equal. As a doctor, he would not allow his daughter to take third and fourth generation contraception. Side effects vary depending on the ingredients
Is the combined pill the right option for what you’ll be getting up to? All the things to consider before you decide to spit or swallow… Find out if you’re one of those who mustn’t take it
Good news if you love white skinny jeans, bad news if you love fish and bees. The combined pill is The Original; it was the first ever hormonal contraceptive and therefore we have more data on this method than any other type. This is important
Lawsuits, pop stars, sacrificial sex; the world of contraception is darker and more exciting than we would first think. But I bet you don’t even know all the options
