Tuesday Two For #15

Gynol II Contraceptive GelWe mentioned in our last post that Gynol II is hard to find. We ordered some on the internet; but it was already past its expiration date when it arrived. Apparently, it seems, it’s being discontinued. We’re not completely out of luck; the manufacturer stull makes an “Extra Strength” variety that can be used with a diaphragm or just by itself. It’s more expensive even though the tubes are smaller; but, presumably, it works just as well. Thankfully, we need to use less per application since we use it in conjunction with a diaphragm. We would be spending a lot more money if we only got 13 uses out of a container. Some women have reported that the additional concentration of active ingredients makes it “numbing”. We’ll take it for an extended test drive and let you know how it goes.
