Yes: You have many options besides condoms and oral contraceptives. See: http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/birth-control/in-depth/birth-control-options/art-20045571 Take care.

Talk 2 you Ob/Gyn: IUDs can be effective for many women along with spermicides to be even safer. It is important to find as safe a way to have relations as possible to avoid destroying your sex drive, which is important for our physical and mental health.
