    Ive been with my fiance for a few yrs now but still the use of a condom turns me off. I can't go on the pill as it caused migraines and otherwise we dont want to risk falling pregnant by withdrawing etc.
    I end up agreeing to condoms but in general we mainly just fondle to get each other off. Is this normal? and what can we try otherwise? Ive tried lubrication but become embarrassed...i think its the plastic that turns me off as it doesnt feel natural and sometimes causes below to feel irritated slightly even though its not an allergy to it and tried different brands. WHen it comes to trying for a baby my partner will love me lol. He seems happy with other means than just sex all the time but i worry he wants more and i do agree but he usually sees me hesitate when it comes to wipping out the condom! thoughts?

    There are many types of birth control other than condoms and birth control pills. Talk to your Doc to assist you in choosing a birth control method that is acceptable to you with a risk level that you can live with.
