Question alternatives to the pill, and all that other stuff!

I just went off my BCP (because of slight weight gain) and I just had a baby so I don’t want another baby just yet (well I wouldn’t mind but my fiancé' has another opinion! ) anyway I don’t want to try any pill, sponge, diaphragm, or anything I have to put in my body! I don’t like I know I have really limited my choices...but what about that spermicide gel? where can you get it? and how well does it work?

Re: alternatives to the pill, and all that other stuff!

How about the patch? Its called Ortho Evra. It's over 99% effective, and I haven't gained any weight at all on it. You just apply it and leave it on for a week. Three weeks on and then one week off. It's so convienient! The spermacide gel is available OTC but it's only around 75% effective. There's also Depo Provera injections every three months but I think that causes weight gain and I had a really bad experience with that.
