For those who use non hormonal methods, what is yours?


We are on the long term waiting to try. I dont like hormones put into my body. We have been using the pull out method. Sometimes using a condom. I dont trust myself charting or doing NFP since i am broody all of the time, me knowing what things are happening is dangerous to me.lol.

We use condoms during my fertile period. Other times we don't use anything. I hate putting things in my body as well, I feel like the hormones from the different medications mess with my system.

I would not mind charting but i think if i start, he would think i am trying. I had been doing opks behind his back, i dont have any ov symptoms most cycles so i always wondered if i was o'ing. But i feel bad about it. So, i am just letting him do his thing.

The book Taking Charge of Your Fertility is well worth reading...

Depends what you mean by calendar methods... The rhythm method is considered quite unreliable but the FAM system has a very high success rate

My cycles are very irregular so i cant go by timing. I am worried about not knowing when i o and then he might not pull out in time or forget to pull out altogether(which he never forgets but just saying) And i have read that pre cum can get you pregnant but i really dont think that is true.

I read this book, and then started charting and getting to know my cycle. We use condoms during the dodgy time. Been fine for about five years now!

I went absolutely loopy on hormonal contraception - I tried a few different types too
