@PeaceLoveLaughter:  DH and I used the POM for 3 years with no “oops” we were not trying for an “oops”. IF the method is used correctly it is almost as effective as a condom. When we decided to TTC we got pregnant on the first try. In my understanding on NTNT the POM method is not used. NTNT just means no BC will be used but sex will not be timed with ovulation. NTNT uses no barrier method so no POM, no charting to avoid pregnancy, no BC, and no condoms.

Darling Husband & I used the POM method for almost our entire relationship with no scares or anything. NTNT is just what Marry Me tiffany said, it’s basically not using anything to prevent. We stopped using POM method the month of our wedding.

I was afraid that I couldn’t get pregnant because it worked for about 2 years but then when we switched to a different method I got pregnant imediatly. Just because you haven’t gotten pregnant so far doesn’t necisarily mean you will have trouble getting pregnant later, he may just doing doing it right.

@PeaceLoveLaughter:  You raise a very interesting question! For me personally, throughout my life I have had rare risky sex (with boyfriend, just wasn’t on hormonal BC and without a condom) a few times and worried that I may be pregnant and never was. Like religiously, never was. So that DID make me worry I was infertile, because of how many of my friends and classmates in high school had “Oops” babies. So when we finally started TTC I was soooo worried about it, and sure enough we got a BFP of the first month of actually actively TTC, after 2 months of NTNT. It ended in MC for me, but at least I know I can get pregnant. Not sure if that’s what you’re wondering, but I feel like it’s a similar situation =)

We use POM and I’ve thought about this a lot! Especially because when I was on BCP, I wasn’t the best at taking my pills and we didn’t get pregnant. So I’m sort of worried that I won’t be able to when the time comes.

Having said that, a co-worker of mine said she used POM for 13 years and got pregnant their first month trying. So I guess you never know…

I’ve got to say I’m glad someone else is thinking this. We’ve used POM our whole relationship without any scares. So yeah I worry a bit about it, and it’s in the back of my mind that what if something is wrong somewhere. Well, just this week decided to just see what happens, guess this puts us in the NTNT camp. I’m not sure if I’m excited or scared or both. Surprised Guess we’ll find out soon enough!

@PeaceLoveLaughter:  It was ME who started that thread! And oh my gosh- I worry a lot that I’m infertile. Not because we use POM, but because I have taken an opk twice now when fertility friend says should be ovulation day (including today) and negative both times. I know I should probably keep testing, but today is supposed to be ovulation day.

@Mrs.Elivs: when you get a positive OPK, you are usually 12-36 hours from ovulating. So if you were supposed to ovulate today, you might have got a positive yesterday or even the day before. I wouldn’t be worried about that!
