Hi Chris, Hi Steka. We used a diaphragm and jelly for the first two years we were married - as I've mentioned before, we, for reasons which now seem rather silly, refrained from having sex before we married. Having been real honest to goodness childhood sweethearts I sometimes wonder how we did it. Lots of steamy petting that stopped just short of actual intercourse had to suffice. I had been fitted with my first diaphragm by my gyn, and got detailed instructions on using it, including practicing insertion and withdrawl as well as adding jelly with an applicator for repeat sex. Along with our steamy making out, we had some rather detailed discussions, including my describing in detail just what was involved in the contraception we would use. So, on the first night of our honeymoon, it came as no surprise to him when I prepared the diaphragm and inserted it - no surprise, but LOTS of interest! One repeat before we slept and another before breakfast resulted in a lot of jelly inside me plus what he added. A pad kept the drippies under control until the requisite 6 hours had passed (just after lunch), at which time I told him I'd like to douche (I had already explained that activity as well), at which time his interest hit a new peak. By the time we finished douching me, we were both ready to begin the whole thing all over again. We used up quite a bit of contraceptive jelly on that honeymoon - as I remember, the brand was "Lanteen" or something like that. Yes, that method was indeed a lot of trouble, but we've got a lot of interesting memories of involving the birth control into our foreplay. When I switched to the pill, we both liked it better, though.
