Help me bonk my wife. We're at our wits' end with birth control.

* The pill - serious emotional and physical side effects.
* Condom - she has a latex allergy. (This would presumably affect diaphragms as well, though we haven't tried.)
* Nonlatex condom - broke the first time we tried.
* Kids - absolutely not.
* Vasectomy - I'm all for it, and we're not interested in having biological children, but it may be that we're too young (20s) to make such a decision (though I hear reversability technologies are getting better.)
So are we doomed to a life of rhythm/withdrawl? Are some of the newer contraceptives (depo/patch) more tolerable for people with reactions to the pill? Is that spermicide goo reliable enough when used alone with the rhythm method?
