Contraception: your experiences

Can anyone out there please help this researcher?

    I don't generally use protection but after having to have an abortion I have used it eva since. I always get my protection from the local chemist and other leading places like Boot's etc. The best method I have eva used is plain and boring condoms as I was on the pill when I had my little accident. We are both quite responsible when it comes to the protection side so it's pretty equal.
    I hope this little lot helps.

    I'm 16/f <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    I'm not exactly amazingly experienced in the sex department, i've only ever slept wit my current bf & we don't get 2 do it that often as we both live @ home. At the moment we use & always have used condoms, we both share the responsibility & usually go shopping 2gether 2 buy them.

    We have discussed me goin on the pill but @ the mo we both don't think its worth it as we don't get 2 have sex often enough 4 condoms 2 become an expense or pain if u get me!?

    I use condoms always. I prefer Trojan Superas as the heat transfer and the extra strength and feel are great. After telling my friends about them, they all thought it was about as good a feeling as without anything. non-latex rocks!

    ive been on the pill for almost 18 months, thats the only method i have used. i did try condoms with my first boyfriend but we had problems with them and he couldnt keep his erection.

    i get the pill from the doctor, it seems a lot better than worrying about the unreliability of condoms, or not having any when you need them and worrying that i might risk unprotected sex in the heat of the moment... this doenst give me the option. i know you have the issue of STDs which the pill doesnt protect against, but i generally have slept with people who have been virgins and not even had a girlfriend before, so im okay.

    Out of my mind. Back in five minutes.

    Hi, I'm 18 and male. My gf uses the pill, as thanks to an incident a year ago with my ex girlfriend I no longer have any confidence in condoms.

    i use condoms and i prefer my girlfriends to be on the pill

    i see it as the condoms stopping diseases and as the first line of defence for contraceptive and the pill as a contraceptive

    in some moments, we don't use the condom because of the hassle it causes

    my g/f is presecribed the pill and i buy condoms from any respectable pharmacy - boots etc

    im on the pill and have been for almost a year now. i get my pill from the doctor. this was after i had a slight accident with a splitting condom. since then ive been on the pill but thats the only contraception we use. if i ever do forget a pill, then we use a condom, or no sex which of course is the best of all!

    we're both quite responsible when it comes down to it. he's always got a supply of condoms handy, and i have a few at my house. although he buys them, well his mum buys them, she's cool like that... hope this helps!

    I used to use condoms to start with but found they ruined the atmosphere and really slowed down proceedings. I am in a serious relationship with my gf and recently have been going without condmoms. she has been on the pill for a acouple of months but used condoms just in case.

    I have to say in my opinion theres no turning back. The sensual pleasure you get without is that much greater.

    its not illegal til u get caught <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.stopstart.fsnet.co.uk/mica/monkbum.gif"&gt;
