Any experience with spermicide sponges or other barrier methods? I am allergic to latex and the lamb skin condoms are a no go as well.
You could use silicone condoms, or get fitted for a silicone diaphragm. The sponges have too high a failure rate for me to be comfortable using them alone...I know several sponge-babies.
