At present my boyfriend and I use condoms, and until recently we have taken a few risks during or immediately before/after my period and had unprotected sex (we are both STI free). I was never fully happy about this, (because getting pregnant scares me so much - I don't want children right now ) but for whatever reason I decided it would be OK. However, lately I just got too scared, and yesterday after asking him to wear a condom, he was quite upset. Not angry at me, just wanting to really feel being inside me. I get it, when I was on the pill briefly, it was nice.
However, I don't want to be on the pill again, I don't like messing with my cycle, and I try to have as natural way of life as possible. He has suggested to me about having the coil fitted (don't know what you call it in the States -IUD?) but I've read up on it and I don't think it's for me, says it's better for women who have already given birth. I suffered for years, and still to some extent from vaginismus, with quite bad pain at the 'start' of intercourse. And i just don't know about having some alien body inside of me. Surely it can't be good for you? The risks sound too high too, perforating the uterusreading too much into the warnings?..?!
Are there any more natural, less invasive ways, or am I
Anyway, if anyone has any advice for me I would really appreciate it.
