We have been using condoms forever , and I AM so happy not to be using them anymore. Theyre such a mood killer and feel gross.

Although, now I am the one who has to get up and go to the bathroom to clean up.

What kind of BC were you using?

I started out on the pill (i forget the brand) but it made me sooo sick, and consequently dropped my sex drive to zero! Then I graduated to the Evra Patch, which I really liked. It was easy to remember (by not having to remember it) and I felt fine on it.
When my husband deployed the first time I didn't renew my perscription because I thought it was a useless expense, and never started it back up again.
We had used condoms almost exclusively since then, up until a few months ago when we jumped on the NTNP bandwagon!

Tried a couple pills, they all made me really sick. Used condoms for a while, but not a fan. I liked VCF (the film, not the foam) a lot, but it can leave you with an unpleasant 'sticky' feeling afterward.

I've been on the pill in the past, but I have had bad side effects so I feel better when I'm off it. Eventually dh plans to get "fixed".

I was on the pill, orto-cept, for years. I went through different kinds to find the right hormone level for me, I had a trouble with spotting in between periods.

I used the pill for a very short period of time, but the times I didn't gag it back up, it made me so sick to my stomach. I tried the Nuvaring, but those were samples & it's kinda pricey. Otherwise it's been condoms when I wasn't in committed relationships. At this point, SO and I are jus letting whatever happens happen since we're both on the fence about a baby & both a little older.

I was using a low oestrogen pill but gave it up over two years ago (shortly after starting it again after ds was born) as my skin broke out, and i felt horrible so have been using the withdrawal method since.
