While using a condom the sensitivity reduces, therefore, less pleasurable sex. Just want to know what’s the difference if I were to use I-pill and whether I should bring it up with my girlfriend.
A condom is the only contraceptive method that protects from STDs and infections as well as pregnancies. It also has among the highest protection rates with little to no side effects caused to the person using them. If you feel like a condom is reducing sensitivity, we would recommend experimenting with different types of condoms (E.g Durex Air) that give a lighter feel.
In contrast, an I-Pill is an emergency contraceptive which should only be used in emergencies within 72 hours of sexual intercourse to prevent unwanted pregnancies. Additionally, I-Pills do not protect you or your partner from contracting sexual infections and using them on a regular basis can cause significant side effects.
If unwanted pregnancies are your only concern, you may explore other contraceptive methods such as birth control, IUDs, contraceptive patches, among others.
It is important to talk to your partner as well as a licensed medical professional who can assist you in identifying a method that works best for you.
