Hanx condom  

Moved away from the pill and onto condoms. Tried HANX as I'd only used mainstream brands historically, and found it much better. Their sizing is better, and it feels a lot more natural - I used to get way more irritation after sex with other brands, whereas now it feels like we're not using anything which is great. Happy to have moved away from hormonal contraceptives and won't go back.

Mates condom  

I am happy using the male condom as it does not effect my hormones nor cause massive physical issues.


Somewhat positive mood
