    I am a happily married female with a very active sex life. when I got married at 19 my freshman year of college my mother had me get on b.c, pills. after having 2 children(, 1 planned and 1 by accident ) , I stayed on b.c. pills until I was 36. during this time my gynecologist tried 5 or 6 different types of birth control pills on me. I just had all kinds of bad side effects, loss of sex libeto, weight gain, mood changes,and worst of all spotting during my cycle. so my sister toldme about something new a femcap. my doctor got me fitted and for the past 7 years my husband and I have been using this method. it doesn’t take me just a minute to put it inside of me at night in the bed, and my husband likes it so good that he has a femcap in his night stand also. he can put it in me just as good as I can. I use contragel with my femcap for extra protection. and the best thing about all of this is that I have had absolutely no bad side effects. the femcap works for us.
