Marisela, 29, spermicide

He's in charge of buying the condoms and the foam.

Parents of four with one on the way, Marisela and her husband have been together since they were teens. They’ve always planned to have a big family, but they’ve also always used birth control when they weren’t trying to get pregnant.

They started out using condoms and soon after added spermicide to the mix. It’s a combination that has worked well for them and allowed them to space their kids exactly as planned.

Marisela doesn’t like putting anything inside her body, so her husband is responsible for inserting the spermicide’s applicator. He’s also in charge of buying all the condoms and spermicide. It’s a team effort, for sure, and we say: Go team!
