    For about 18 months the POM (sometimes with and sometimes without comdoms) was my method of birth control.

    My husband and I used the Pull-out Method for 6 1/2 years.  No pregnancy here.  He said he would pull out way before he “felt it coming” not at the moment of climax.

    Worked like a charm. (I think it’s less effective when the person waits until climax has already begun).

    We exclusively use the POM and have for about 2 years now. It’s a bit scarier now only because we have the wedding in May and we might start using condoms because of this, however we have not had any scares. Fiance has good self control and it’s never been an issue.

    @RedPandas:  This is the only method that we use now.  BCP made me extremely moody and anxious due to the extra hormones and now every time we use a condom it feels dry and it hurts so we stay away from them.  We aren’t looking to get pregnant right now but we also know that it wouldn’t be the end of the world if it happened.

    We only use the POM. Going on 8 years here – no babies yet, not even a scare. Although – he hasn’t been pulling out for 3 months now – still no scare.

    We use pull-out method AND chart my fertility signs (temperature, cervical mucus, and firmness of the cervix).  During my non-fertile times we use pull-out exclusively.  When it is during fertile times, we use condoms!

    This is all we use.  We’ve been pulling out, for going on 2 years now. I guess he’s good at, because there have been no buns in this oven.
