    Have any of you ever used the coil??
    I cannot use the pill, as I have irregular periods. sometimes lastng 4-5 weeks. Same with the patch, which I am using at the minute, just entering week 4 of my period.
    I don't trust condoms any more, after them splitting on me, twice. The female ones really kill the mood.
    The injection has side effects which I won't go into, way to deep for online chatting.
    Spermicides don't work.
    I don't want my tubes tied, cuz I haven't had kids yet.

    I am basically left with the coil, but I heard you shouldn't really have that unless you have already had kids. So would appreciate some advice.

    Thanks.

    I cant take the pill either, but the coil is something that the doctor did suggest to me as an option, but I dont have a boyf at the moment so I havent given it a go. I was told that it isnt something normally considered for younger people except in circs when people cant take the pill so it would be a consideration for you. I would ask your doctor for some advice about it.

    The side affects however of the coil are that they can make your periods heavier and longer so it might not be suitable for you.

    This maybe might be a better option for you because it has all the benefits of the IUD coil and also lightens your periods

    Also ok it isnt the nicest method but have you considered the diaphragm?
    its a bit offputting like the female condom though

    As long as it is reversible, it could be the answer, thanks I will take a look.

    No offence to any men but i dont think I'd trust a guy to use a non visible means of contraception. They dont have the same incentive as women to do it of getting pregnant.
    I suppose it would be ok though if you were in a long term relationship.

    Thats such a good point, most guys would probably just completly ignore their regimen.

    my fiance` is trust worthy, after I caught last. He is always checking I am using something, and worried if there is any uncertainty of it not working. But I know what you mean, unles you know a bloke really well, you wouldn't trust them to sort it for themselves.

    Emphasis on the word decent there.

    Men are flippin hard to trace and even when you trace em its difficult to get the money in all circumstances. Its just a personal opinion anyway. If I was a guy thered be no way I'd trust some girl who told me she was on the pill unless we were in a long term relationship. Even then its dodgy I accidentally (and i mean accidentally) took mine late a few times when it was supposed to be taken at the same time every day, I'm sure I'm not the only girl thats ever done that.

    Your right, I know girls who used to tell blokes they were on the pill, because they hated condoms. SILLY!!!!

    They only tried this method on something ridiculous like 50 couples though, I'd like to know it had been tried a bit more before I put any faith in it.

    Thats why it isn't available yet. Like the male pill, has been tested for 6 years, but release date is still a long way off.

    condoms are the most reliable, if used properly.. however, i suggest you go and speak to your doctor and see what they suggest, or go to a well woman clinic...

    condoms aren't the most reliable contraception by a long way, they are just prefered as they are a barrier method; they can help stop infections spreading.

    don't they have one of the highest % protection rates?
