I've been using this with a diaphragm for a little over a year and haven't had any problems with it. It also comes with an applicator, if you choose to use it that way. It can provide a little lubrication, but I wouldn't count on it for that. I haven't had any issues or any babies, so I can't complain about this product at all. So far, so good!

I've been using this for three years with my diaphram and I haven't gotten pregnant, so I guess it works pretty well.

We used this alone for several months, maybe a year, because my husband didn't like condoms and I can't take the pill-- then I got pregnant. Later as my female cousin and I were comparing notes we both realized we'd BOTH been using this when we got pregnant. Our children are six months apart so I wish she'd told me earlier! So buyer beware, you'd best be using it with condoms or a diaphram unless you're into russian roulette!
