What would you say is the best means of birth control besides [no sex at all]

After getting pregnant while on the pill, I'll have to say tubal or vasectomy.

Dh had a vasectomy and that seems to be working pretty good so far but I do get nervous because I've heard the stories of couples getting pg. after a V. But I don't want to go on BC because it zaps my sex drive so I just keep hoping his V is good until I hit menopause.

I don't think there's a best means that fits everyone. But I love my IUD. I haven't had a period in 4 1/2 years! Love it!

I think it is personal preference, honestly. My tubes are tied, and I still worry about getting pregnant. LOL! Old habits die hard, I guess.

Do some research and talk to your Dr. about what would be best for you. There are OTC alternatives like spermicides and condoms. I used to use spermicides alone and didn't get pregnant, but probably not the best way.
