At the prime age of 37 this was my first time using a contraceptive to prevent pregnancy rather than just to curb the affects of heavy periods/endometriosis. I can't argue with how affective it is as since I started taking it, I have had 0 risk of pregnancy! Mostly because the realisation to the guy I'd been seeing for 6 months that I only wanted to sleep with him was enough to put him off to start with. If this doesn't work and he hangs around your moods will definitely do it! Any fragment of self esteem developed in life to date will also be questioned which will result in the likelihood of getting laid any time soon being a rare possibility. On the upside, it has however reduced my periods significantly so now I just have to question whether a lighter period is worth a bit of emotional instability?! Lol! Obviously it's different for everyone but this is my experience. I think I'll just stick with using my personality as a contraceptive in the future as it rarely lets me down! May be best to check with someone who was exposed to sperm for its real effectiveness though lol :)
