I’ve had them break and slip off. And yes they are expensive, give me a break. People who are poor have to decide between lights and food sometimes. Even tampons can be a big expense for a lot of people.
This is an ADHD tangent from the other thread. Fertility options are plowing forward for the mega wealthy. We focus so much attention on rights to life that will never touch or impact the most affluent people on earth. If their money travels internationally them without restraint they can choose their posterity at almost anytime.
Never mind, I think I’m being a dope.

I’ve had them break and slip off. This happened more often when I was younger, inexperienced, and unprepared to handle a child. I didn’t have health insurance through a good chunk of my twenties and relied on Planned Parenthood and condoms for BC. In many states, Planned Parenthoods are under attack and geographically impossible to access for many young people- particularly those who don’t have access to transportation. Those people are, you guessed it, overwhelmingly on the poorer side- the kind of people who would have trouble affording condoms. I’m very privileged to have grown up in a blue state with ample access to these resources. Birth control IS a privilege, no matter how you slice it.
