what is the most green living contraceptive?

  1. Probably a diaphragm or cervical cap.

    Condoms are not reusable, a diaphragm is. And no method other than celebacy is 100% effective (surgery is close).

    See link.

  2. I can’t speak to the biodegradability of various condoms but just have to say that natural methods DO work. You have to learn about them and then apply them and that of course involves human behavior and being responsible. However, if you are willing to learn and have a partner that is as well, it doesn’t take much time at all and doesn’t lead to ANY waste…either from manufacture of a barrier method OR from taking a hormone contraceptive. Very green in my book. We have used the fertility awareness method for YEARS successfully and when the time came that we wanted our first child, it was easy for me to know when the timing would be right.

    here’s a link on the book we used: http://www.amazon.com/Taking-Charge-Your-Fertility-Anniversary/dp/0060881909/ref=pd_bbs_1/104-6627531-7755969?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1182273331&sr=8-1


  3. whatever stops you having more kids. condoms are medical waste so they are in their own class of waste.
    They do most damage if they are flushed down the toilet.

  4. Both latex and lambskin condoms are biodegradable. Polyurethane condoms are not. In any case, the best way to dispose of them is in the trash, not the toilet.

    Birth control pills cause excess excreted estrogen to wind up in water sources, causing some male fish to become sterile.

  5. Coitus interruptus….a.k.a. withdrawal or pull out method.
    lol! <*-*>

    ADD: Natural methods are too risky for unwanted pregnancies.
