My story for anyone who cares to read: Over the course of Future Hubby & I's relationship (over 3 years), I've been on SOOO many different types of birth control (lovera, solia, yaz, seasonique, the nuvaring to name a few) because I was bleeding every 2 weeks instead of once a month. An unnecessary MRI, surgery (D&C that showed I had a heart shaped uterus) and one depo shot later (that caused me to bleed for 4 months continuously), I finally discovered that I am of a small percentage of people where birth control has no effect on me except that is screws with my hormones. So basically I was having one natural period and 1 BCP induced period a month.

After the depo I decided no more hormones for me! Finally it was F.H.'s turn to take matters into his hands and wear a love glove--and he did, until repeated use made his poor "johnson" red and irritated and itchy And it kind of burned for me too...

So to recap, I can't use BCP, he can't use condoms, and no doctor will come near me with an IUD because of my funky shaped utuerus, so we've resorted to withdrawal! I think it's been 4-5 months now.

I don't recommend it though because every month has a 2ww lol! And you can't help but be a little let down when AF shows...
Have you considered having a diaphragm fitted with natural spermicides? I've used one and got on really well with it. It was certainly better for us than condoms and the pill!

Jexter, you're cute, broody, and male with a university education. You might want to wear a helmet in case you hit your head when you're snapped up

I went out for tea last night with some Sixth Form people that I've not seen in a long time. It's funny how we all grow at different rates. Some are the same (mentally) as they were 5 years ago! I'm ready to settle, just need the money haha x

Hiya,

I'm new to this site. I got married a couple of months ago, after about 2 weeks of being married all I could think about was babies. We have been together 9 years and when we say we don't have any children people are so shocked.
I thought the feeling would wear off but it never did it just got worse, I started watching programmes on home and health. I watched the programme one born every minute in the hope that it would put me off but it didn't it had the opposite affect. My Husband and I had said that we would wait at least a year, but I actually told him the other day that I don't think I can actually wait that long I might have gone nuts by then. So we have decided to start trying in June - only 7 months to go!
We wanted to wait a year so we could be financially ok, not have all the debts paid off but be in an ok place.

Ah - people after my own heart. I'm doing my best not to go up to OH right now and start stamping my feet - although maybe not the maturist way to get over my feelings about not wanted to wait!

I'm a little like you TrixieBell - we got married in July, and even though I've been broody before, since then i've literally have baby feet running round my head since!

Saying that, I think I'd find it easier if we set a time limit on when we were going to start trying. Right now there are too many variables (me and him both have very low paying jobs despite working hard with 40+ hour weeks, we can't really afford our own place, despite being married we live with my parents - and our council is very much you're not single, jobless, a drug addict and you were born and bred in the town so you've got no chance - sadly our "advisor" said as much!) that need to be in place before then.

It's just so frustrating because I can't see that changing for a long time yet.....a long time.

And he wonders why I get unneccasarily angry right now!

I really hope my OH does not changed his mind about our TTC date.

I am really trying to get my career going! I work as a carer at the mo, but I'm starting to volunteer in admin after xmas, just one day a week to increase my employability!

Fingers crossed :-)
