Birth control options during menopause

Hi ladies! For any of you still having a period like I am (I am 47) and still regular but definately going through the change, do you have any recommendations for birth control? I am using progesterone cream so I really don't want to use bc pills or anything with other hormones. I don't know what to use. I was using a diapram but the last time I used it I got a bladder infection and bacterial vaginosis. UGH! There just isn't anything practical. My boyfriend isn't fixed and neithor am I. He doesn't like condoms and I think they are just ok. Any options ladies? I am frustrated and not sure what to do. Thanks for any responses!
