I didn't know I needed any man's approval for how I choose to protect myself from unwanted pregnancy (/sarcasm).
My aunt used this stuff in the 70s. She got pregnant at 17. I honestly don't think creams or foams are all that effective unless combined with another method, such as a condom or diaphragm.

A lot of women who cannot tolerate the pill use this kind of thing, but some people are also allergic to it. I remember one woman telling me about the nasty allergic reaction her husband had to spermicide. I think before your man "approves" this you might suggest he do a skin test.
