It really was the strangeset thing, and like I said it left me feeling alientated. Needless to say, I'm not going back to our local Jewel pharmacy. My OB/GYN called them lazy pharmacists. Doc called the Walgreens I had also gone too, who said they were on backorder. (I love how the Dr. gets the straight answers, and not the patron.) Then Doc called the manufacturer, who said they were discontinued because they were coming out with a newer version. While Dr. was on the phone with manufacturer, Walgreens calls them back and says it's been taken off of backorder and should be available this week. Weird and complicated, right?
Well, I have my brand spanking new diaphragm from Walgreens. The Doc helped by calling around. This has been an informative adventure in contraceptives! Now, off to wave it at the pharmicists at Jewel and stick my tongue out at them!
Thank you all for your help and suggestions.
