Natalia, 27, sponge

The biggest perk is the 24-hour window.

Natalia was on the pill, but then she lost her health insurance. She had to start paying $60 a month out of pocket and after a while, it was just too much.

Natalia decided to switch to the sponge, a method she could get without a prescription. She likes that it’s easy to use and comfortable.

She’s spending less than she was on the pill, but Natalia still finds the sponge to be a bit pricey. There’s a perk, though, that makes the cost of the sponge a little more tolerable. Natalia can wear one for 24 hours and have sex as many times as she wants. In other words, the more she does it, the more cost effective each sponge becomes!
