Rachel, 25, diaphragm

Put it in. Have sex. That's basically it.

Rachel’s first method of birth control was the the pill. She didn’t like the first brand she was tried, so she asked for another. Then another. Each had different side effects and eventually Rachel decided that hormonal methods just weren’t for her.

After her doctor explained how a diaphragm works, Rachel decided to give it a go. And she’s been happy with her choice ever since.

Rachel feels in control when using her diaphragm and finds it easy to put in—even when she’s already in the heat of the moment. She just excuses herself to “slip into something more comfortable.”
