Thanks ladies. I think I'm just going to have to call my doc and get on the pill before my appointment. I only have DH home till Monday (probably) and then he goes back out. I really, REALLY don't want to get pregnant but at the same time really don't want to have to abstain.
The IUD isn't for us, and condoms are a drag. Spermicide is irritating and the diaphragm wasn't a good fit for me when I tried that. Ugh, birth control is such a pain! They had better let me do the mini pill because they refused me last year after I had the blood clot in my lung. From what I understand, estrogen is the one that puts you at an elevated risk for clotting, so I'm not sure why the mini pill is a problem.
I don't think I trust myself to know how to do NFP right so I'm just going to have to get on some hormones. Thanks for the responses though!
