FAMers, what do you love about FAM?

What kind of FAM do you use?
  • Contraceptive device/practise on fertile days only
  • Contraceptive device/practise on infertile days, abstinence on fertile days
  • Some other combination?
On fertile days, do you ever worry that your contraceptive of choice will fail?

barriers during fertile phase nothing during infertile phase. In the beginning it was a little weird and worrisome, but I don't fret about it breaking anymore because we have found a good brand of barriers that we have had absolutely no trouble with.

In the beginning I was a little worried because of issues with the barrier chosen, but now that we have found an extremely reliable barrier, I don't worry anymore. If it breaks, it breaks and if I get pregnant it is meant to be. I wouldn't worry about anything unless something blatantly went wrong with the barrier. We only use barriers during fertile time and nothing when I am infertile.

We use condoms during fertile times. I do 'worry' a little, however it wouldn't be the end of the world if we did fall pregnant now. I actually think we'd both be quite happy about it! Plus, I'm really in the mood to DTD around the time I ovulate - which doesn't make NFP work very well!! We're both happy using FAM.
