I've had a few about how it's not really birth control that really bug me.
I've had someone tell me that unless I've already had a child it probably means I'm infertile if we're using these methods and not getting pregnant.

This is only sort of related, but almost every time I explain why I hate hormone birth control pills (not in a judgmental or debating way), I get the comment "Well, that's not my pill." It drives me crazy, but what can you do?
I've had several people say it doesn't work for them because they are "super" fertile. When I some more about it, it seems like they never really did it correctly to begin with which was aggravating. They seem to think NFP doesn't work and feel like they have to "warn" me about it.
The few people who know we use NFP assume we have a large family because NFP doesn't work. We have a lot of kids because we chose to NTNP, not because we're playing roulette and "lost". Our children are blessings from GOD and not proof that NFP doesn't work.
It is funny, though... several years and a few children ago the comment I would hear is "You're done now, right?" Now it is "when are you having another?"
