Check out this article on the most common birth control mistakes and how to avoid them.  I was surprised to learn that sponges need to be left in for quite awhile after sex.  I've never used them, but I figured if in my old age I grew sick of the pill I may give them a try.  I don't think I could enjoy a used sponge hanging around in there for awhile hehehe.

I am still amazed at how many birth control options there really are. When I picked the pill over a decade ago it was largely because it seemed simple and didn't require anything being inserted. If I had to make a choice now? I might try the patch if it stayed put and came in a color other than that icky beige.

Oh wow the look of the female condom is dreadful. Whoever designed it had no sense of aesthetics or ease of use. I'm glad you had a doctor that was willing to go over so many options with you. Did they also explain emergency contraception?
