The Search For The Perfect Condom

Love, Sex

Birth control pill fears prompt a woman to test drive condoms with her husband.

I'm married and monogamous, but not yet ready to have children. So—since neither my husband nor I like the feel of condoms during sex (it dulls his sensitivity, and I just love the warmth of skin rubbing against skin)—we rely on The Pill as our main method of birth control to keep us baby-free.

I've been taking Yaz for a couple years now, which also helps with my PMDD (also known as that crazy, dark, slightly psychotic half that emerges from the shadows every month or so). Then, the other day, I read this scary-as-hell story about how Yaz could be (way) riskier than other birth control pills. And while I had never experienced anything negative while on Yaz, and I know medications affect different people in different ways, I began to wonder, Should I go off the pill entirely and start using condoms?
