    NancyNegator:  We have used the pull out method succesfully for 3 years. FWIW I have been pregnant before from being on antibiotics while I was on the pill.

    1 year so far! haven’t had a “scare” either, but I am always a bit more anxious for my period than I ever was when I was using BC. I know we are careful, but it’s just not 100% safe, so you never know!

    We’ve been together 8 years and have had sucess with that method. Granted it’s not the only method we use exclusively. But there were a couple years solid that it was the only method in there when I couldn’t really afford my bc because of crappy insurance.

    I’m following this because I’m also curious. Has anyone had this method prove unsuccessful? 

    I really want to get off birth control, but we’re really not ready for an accidental pregnancy… we could be, but we don’t want to be yet. I just don’t want to switch out of a method that works for me for something too risky.

    Five (almost 6) years going strong!  With that said though, neither of us have had kids & I often wonder the same things you do.

    10 years with success with that method over here. We started trying and got pregnant the first try. I felt the same way. my husband and I thought it would take a year to get pregnant given we haven’t had a oops in 10 years but no!

    NancyNegator:  Yep. We track my cycle with the My Days app and then use pull out close to ovulation and condoms VERY close to ovulation. 🙂
