Courtney used to be on the pill, but was advised to go off of it when her breasts grew to the point of causing back pain. Her doctor suggested condoms and spermicide instead, and that combo has kept her protected since.
Courtney got really good at using spermicide when in an abusive relationship. That guy didn’t want her to use condoms, but she could still use spermicide without him knowing.
Now she has a partner that will use condoms, but she still uses spermicide for herself. She puts it in when he’s on his way to her house and she’s ready to go when he gets there. It’s extra protection that puts her at ease.
The spermicide is just something that I do for me.
