as long as it dissolves complelty it will be fine, have you looked into the mirena IUD though? i have one, not for protection, DH is fixed, but to control crazy periods, and its safer and you wouldn't have to worry about it absorbing.

I had problems with my brand absorbing...so I ended up with the ring. I'm too chicken to do the Mirena!

I'm on a BC pill and I guess I"m not sure if it's still working after my ileo last March...but I never worried about it not absorbing because the pill is so tiny.

oh it does hurt,but not for long, and not nearly as bad as the other stuff we have been through! it just pinches for a bit, then i took some advil and it quit hurting.
its nice though because i have very light periods now most months wtih no cramps or any of the other annoying stuff, about every 4 months or so i have a regular period wtih some cramps but not usually that bad.
