hello, i dont really have much of a question, but am mostly just curious. Well my boyfriend and i use condoms with spermicidical lubricant (N-9) on them, and so i decided to look into what Nonoxynol-9 actually was. And i found alot of articles, many from 1999 up to now, stating that tho it is believe and originally said that it prevents HIV and other such things since it kills of sperm cells, altho what they said was that in some cases, after a few studies that it actually induced the occurance of STDs in sexually active participants. But there were also those who disagreed with that and said that it was a good use for contraception etc. so i was just curious on what your stand point is on this?
