Sonya, 28, sponge

I got the sponges for free and have enjoyed them ever since.

Sonya started out on the pill and then tried the shot. But not being happy with either of those methods, she decided to try the sponge once a friend recommended it. It didn’t hurt that her clinic gave her a bunch for free.

Because the sponge is still new to her, Sonya hasn’t yet told her boyfriend about the switch. She plans to tell him soon, but thinks he might find it weird that she puts something inside herself. We just hope he’s happy to hear that she’s taking steps to protect them both from unplanned pregnancies.
