I think it’s called Trojan ‘Thintensity’ or something. They are also quite good and cannot really feel like anything is in there.

Another option for you would be to get the book “Taking Charge of your Fertility.” By charting you will be able to be on top of your system regulating coming off BC and when you’re ready you’ll already know the best days to TTC. In the mean time, you won’t have to use protection except when you’re fertile. We choose to abstain during that time as we don’t want to be subject to the condom failure rates and personal belief… but in reality there’s only a period of 5 or so* days where you are able to possibly get pregnant each cycle.

*Sperm can live for a max. of 5 days in the right environment. The “or so” refers to the safety days to ensure no conception in case of delayed or double ovulation and first signs of fertility.

Are the multiples fraternal?  Cause identical twins aren’t hereditary….

OMG–are you my twin? I, too…am off BC, HATE condoms, and am a nurse, so I fully understand all of the what ifs and uh ohs, etc…we are following the Natural Family Planning…er…NOT planning! I had been on BC for about 14 years and we decided to stop using it before the wedding, so that afterwards we would be able to start TTC whenever we wanted, without having to worry about when I would start to ovulate after being on BC for so long.

you should definitely use condoms as a backup until you’re able to figure out your cycle. it can take a while to regularize itself after going off bc, so NFP definitely wouldn’t be a reliable form of birth control at first.

i’ve found all of the ones labeled “thin” are pretty good.

DH and I use Lifestyles Ultra Sensitive since they’re very thin and they don’t smell like latex. 🙂

We use Trojan.  We have to use the Magnums and they are the only ones we’ve found that fit well.  We are doing NFP and using condoms during ovulation.  It’s obviously not quite the same but we have been happy with them.

We use the Trojan Ultra Thin or whatever they are called that you referenced. They’re in a grey box? Lol. They’re our favorites that we have tried…and we have tried lots and lots of brands. 🙂 He says they feel the best, and I agree.

If/when you try them, try not to compare them to not using anything I’m sure you’ll think they aren’t any good. But if you compare them to “standard” or other brands, I think you’d notice how much lighter they feel.

It doesn’t matter if multiples run in your husband’s family – you control whether there are multiples with the # of eggs that are released/the splitting of an egg.

I second the thin condoms – we had to use them as a stopgap once. Not quite so bad as the normal ones…

I have no problem with condoms (dont get why people do) but we use all sorts of kinds – I like to try different brands/styles etc.  I like Durex (i think) Love.  Its in the red package and is probably my favorite.  Also any low scent, lubed, for her ones are the best to go with if it’s been a while.

We use a couple of different brands but have found that in some brands the ultra thin ones are tighter than the regular or ribbed etc and can be uncomfortable

My favorite is definitely the Kimono brand ones, they’re a little bit more expensive but the lube they’re packaged with is way better/less harsh (I’d had problems with the Trojan lube–sorry tmi). I’d also suggest looking into Natural Family Planning, we’re looking into that option too 🙂

The only thing you would have to potentially worry about is if multiples ran in your family, because it depends on how many eggs you release, not his side.

We’ve used Trojan thintesity and like them, it doesn’t feel all thick and plasticy.
