Do any married/engaged couples use condoms as their birth control method?

My FI and I used condoms most of the time. I don’t think there is anything wrong with it, we just don’t want to get pregnant yet! LOL. We will probably stop after the wedding.

@MrsPanda99:  I know plenty of married couples who use rubber because the woman doesn’t like the idea of being pumped with horomoes. To each their own! 🙂

@MrsPanda99:  We tried this. I was sick of being on the pill, but we didn’t quite want to conceive yet (we just got married in April!) so I got off the pill and we bought a big box of condoms. About 72 hours later, we were already skipping the condoms and just letting fate take its course. We hated them! They are so weird. I forgot how relieved I was to get into a committed relationship so I could stop using them, haha.

@MrsPanda99:  Also, I forgot to add, when I was 19, I got pregnant while using a condom. And it definitely didn’t break…. so IDK what happened. But they’re far from 100% effective.

I personally wouldn’t trust condoms as the ONLY protection. We use double just in case one method fails.

I’m not on BC, and we use condoms or P/O method most of the time. I am absolutely okay with this, and I have NEVER associated condoms with just ‘hooking up’. It’s a responsible form of BC. I personally do not want to be on the pill for a lot of different reasons, so this is just fine for us.

@MrsPanda99:  I was on BCP for a long time and developed a cardiac arrhythmia. I stopped hormonal BC and used condoms for a while. However, I felt..odd? (not sure how to explain it) using them with my FI and I hated the smell, so we use the pull-out method. Terrible, I know.

We use condoms and will continue to do so until we are done having kids.  I’m not a fan of the pill, you can’t see it fail until your pregnancy test says positive.

Depends on how comfortable you feel if you were to get pregnant. Its a personal opinion but I personally would use another form of BC also.

No. I stopped BC after the wedding for a few reasons:  1. I ran out, 2. I just wanted to stop taking them 3 . because we plan to TTC in late summer/early fall.

 

We talked about our BC options since although we’d be fine if we got pregnant, we just use pull out. Condoms weren’t really an option for either of us because we both hate them, but plenty of monogamous couples use them to prevent pregnancy.
