dr.-dave-bordered.jpg  Dr. Dave States: Once again good ole' abstinence is the primary natural choice, but if you have to play you will probably have to pay.  Condoms and diaphrams are a strong second choice in this protective game.  There are a few different herbs that can lower the fertility factor, but nothing is for sure not even the medical "pill".
