Use while on cycle or in loo of tampon!!
Not the intended use by makers, but this product works really well if you're having a light to medium cycle in loo of a tampon. It also keeps from making a big mess when having intercorce on your cycle. I used one instead of a tampon, when I ran out, forgot I was even on my cycle, until later and noticed how great it works for both. That was about 6 years ago and have used them at the appropriate times for me, ever since. This also works super well if your partner is wanting to conceive and you're not ready or if your husband is very religious and doesn't believe in you getting your tubes tied. Oh and a helpful tip for removal in any situation or a complication.. use a douch filled with water while stratteling over the toilet backwards not to make a mess and not to have to root around and find it.
I am 31 and stopped using birth control pills for future ease of conception. I am not looking to get pregnant quite yet and was thrilled to find a birth control method that doesn't require a prescription. I have only used this once but was pleased with ease of use and comfort and will continue to use this birth control.

How far in advance can you insert it? / do you have to insert it? i.e, at least 1 hour/no more than 3 hours before intercourse

1. Maybe not initially for first time users. The material is squishy though and fits right where it needs to. Even for the smallest people, the sponge will fit if you follow the instructions included with the product.
2. "Before sexual intercourse" is the only time you should insert it. In other words there is no "in advance" time limit. You can put it in when you are ready to begin, or even an hour before if you don't want to interrupt the process.
