Yup, I do. I’m on BCPs and we use condoms every single time. Now is not the time for us to get pregnant!!

Yup. I’ve been consistently on BC since I was 18, never miss (except when I couldn’t take it when I was in the hospital for an unrelated procedure) and we still use a condom every single time.

We use the pull-out.  After one scare (my period was late due to stress at school) YEARS ago, he’s been really paranoid about finishing inside me.

Just recently stopped the pill, but when I was still on it DH was funny about it too. Now that we are TTC, it’s not a problem. Lol

@MichiganGirl24:  I always thought it was kind of crazy too, but I wasn’t going to question it. I was awful at remembering to take my pills so it was probably for the best!

Nope we don’t use a back up at all. Neither of us like condoms very much and I’m not a fan of the pull out method (I mean… it’s just so messy!). 

Even when we were in college, and it would have been pretty bad if I had become pregnant, we didn’t use a back up with my birth control.

I e been on bcp for 10 years. Up until the wedding he always had to use a condom. My biggest fear was getting knocked up before wedding. Now that were married im still on pill but we no longer use a condom, its a dream come true (haha) for him. I think because ive been on it for so long im gonna be fine, but if i get preg atleast were Married!

@MichiganGirl24:  We use the POM ontop of my BCP but we used to only use the pull out method. We have never had a pregnancy scare but it is also very unlikely that we will ever concieve…We still take precautions because right now is NOT the time to have a baby. 

EDIT: condoms smell/feel bad and I had a reaction to one the first time we tried it (TMI but the POM is kind of visually pleasing)

Nope.  Pill only.  I’m not worried.

I have been on the pill for over four years, it is the only contraceptive method we use. We have had no problems with it, but I take it perfectly (same time every day).

Nope. I’ve been on the pill for over 10 years and we don’t ever use condoms – and I’ve never gotten pregnant! Just make sure you take the pill correctly (every single day around the same time) and you’ll be just fine!
