    I use birth control pills plus spermicidal film (turns into a gel on your cervix – both chemical and physical barrier).I got pregnant using just the pill and taking it perfectly, so now we double up.

    The natural method won’t work for you if you are on the pill (since the pill stops ovulation, you won’t be able to track ovulation symptoms).

    What about IUDs?

    The only way you can truly prevent an unwanted pregnancy is to abstain. I got pregnant with my first child on the pill, so I suggest you use two forms of whatever birth control you are comfortable with, if you truly want to wait the two years.

    DH and I just use the pill and don’t worry about him pulling out at all.  We aren’t planning to have a baby for a few more years but if we did get pregnant while I’m on the pill, it wouldn’t be a big deal.  So no need to try to be “extra” cautious in my book!

    @PrncssDva: You have pulling out on the poll twice so you can put IUD in place of one of those!

    I have been on hormonal BC for years and have never had a close call with it.  I’m using Nuvaring now so I don’t have to worry about taking a pill at the same time every day.

    I have gotten preg. on the paraguard IUD then my 2nd one fell out. I’ve heard a lot of women complain of heavy bleeding w/ the mirena IUD. So whichever method you choose you just have to be ready to possibly be that 1% failure rate.

    @PrncssDva: I’ve been on BC for 7 years now, works great for me.

    Another thought – maybe you could add “condoms+BC (used together)” to your poll.  DH and I did this for most of our relationship (up until a couple months before we got married).

    I’ve been on the Nuvaring for years and I love it. Its so easy and I really haven’t experienced any side affects. In my time I’ve tried birth control pills (cant stomach them), Depo Provera shot (loved it but gained alot of wait), the Patch (loved it until I started having a really bad skin reaction to it) and now the Nuva Ring. My Fiance has a vasectomy so its not really an issue of not TTC but just that I have Adenomyosis and my cycles are brutal. My doctor told me I could keep changing my Nuva Ring out every month and not have a cycle until I was ready for my hysterectomy.
