This is a really frustrating thing that I get really, really frustrated by. There are a few options.
- Glyde condoms are vegan and made in the U.S. (They also make vegan lubrication! And they have flavored condoms! So fun!)
- If you have a penis, and are making the sustainable decision to not have kids, vasectomies at planned parenthood are very vegan-friendly.
- If you have a vagina and are making that decision, you can pick your poison if you so desire. In other words, from what I’ve gathered through lots of research and conversation with medical professionals, there is not a single sterilization process that does not have negative side effects. I know, I’m just as pissed as you are.
Other than that, I’m not sure. Most, if not all, of birth control pills, as well as the NuvaRing are tested on animals.
