I'm just wondering how you all got pregnant.
Were you on any kind of bc? I'm not pregnant but I'm asking since my DH and I use the pull out method and towards the end use condoms, altough my slight baby fever we're hoping we don't get pregnant for the next 2 years.

We were using the pull-out method. It wasn't very effective!

i was on the pill and used condoms! maybe try charting? i think abstinance is the only way to really avoid getting pregnant so knowing when to avoid is the best option.

We weren't really preventing in any way. We weren't trying either.

The only sure fire way to NOT get pregnant is DON'T have sex. Since a lot of people have a hard time with that I would suggest birthcontrol, condoms and don't have sex when it is "O" time.

I came off my BC patch at the end of January and we were using condoms That obviously didn't work! I ended up pregnant 3 months before we really wanted to be.

I'm wondering if it's that easy to get pregnant from just using condoms. hubby and I use the pull-out method till he feels like he'll be getting pre-cum and then we continue with condoms.

BTW, where can I get a free online chart so I can keep track?

Swade66, are you serious about not having sex at all around the "O" time?

Yeah but not even that is 100% effective. I mean sperm can live for a few days so you could still get pregnant if you have sex a couple days before you O.

As far as putting on the condom when he "thinks" he is getting pre-cum I don't think that would be very effective either.

Just lurking but wanted to answer here as well. My first pg I was on the shot, second was on the pill, and third was with an IUD! I still have the IUD so I'm praying that time was just a fluke. Of course, with my IUD it was triplets! Yikes! The only sure fire thing is NO SEX for sure!

I was on the pill, and he used the pull out method.

How can he feel the pre-cum??? The only thing I can say is that, to not have sex.

I was on the pill, but I switched types and my doctor told me to be careful for a few weeks, and I thought I had everything all figured out and counted the right number of days when making the switch, but apparently not so much.

Why did he use the pull-out method if you were on the pill? I always thought the pill was supost to work better...

LOL, I have read alot about pre-cum most guys dont know when it's coming out but some guys like my DH can, he says he feels light cramping or some thing like that a little befor he gets pre-cum.

Does any one know where I can get a free online chart?

If you really don't want to get pregnant I will say again the ONLY SURE WAY is to NOT have sex AT ALL.

"Protection" obviously didn't work for many many women on this board...I would say don't have sex during "O" week...seriously.

we're basically saying that most of us got pregnant using one form of contaception or another, so NOTHING is totally effective. if you know when you're ovulating it does give a better chance. i dont know where you can get a chart, but theres a charting board on JM, you could ask there.

I didn't get pregnant for over a year without using any method and that was when I wanted a baby. Then I started realizing how much I don't really care for babies and how I wanted my life for me, I got pregnant. I very much want this baby but she was very unexpected because I was under the impression that I would never get pregnant again.
