Excuse the subject if I offended anyone here but I think we are all grown ups in the sex area with out fiance’s or significant others. But here is the deal that I have to bring up…
My hunny thinks I wont get pregnant because we are super duper protective! Let me tell you this man is one fertile myrtle (Okay, maybe not a myrtle), but he has 4 daughters! Thats right, 4 and I love each of them, but I have an order for how I want things in my life…. dating (been dating for 3 1/2 years), engagement (engaged 1 1/2 years) marriage (planning that) and then kids down the road. Which is is definitely all about my plan when he thinks with the head on top of his head! When the other head gets in the way, all those plans get thrown out the window.
I am a worry wart! I am on the pill and have been for 13 years! We use those luckly lil raincoats…. condoms! Which he hates! (who doesn’t, right?) and we also Pull out! Although he doesnt mind that we do the Pull and Pray, he absolutely hates the raincoats! It’s not that I like them, I dont want to be pregnant. ANd he usually pitches enough of a fit, that I give in to what he wants as long as he knows the next time, we have to be more protected with the rubbers.
But back to the subject…. he thinks that I wont get pregnant if we just use two forms of protection…. the 3 P’s….. pills, pull and pray. I happen to think as fertile as he is, anything can happen and would just be my luck. What do y’all think? Amd I just being paranoid?

Heck, we did the pill and didn’t bother pulling for 3+ years with no incidents. I only got knocked up after I went off the pill and we tried something else.

I think you should consider using spermicide or spermicidal films. You can’t feel them, but they offer another layer of protection. Even before he comes, some sperm comes out, so “pull and pray” is not 100% even if you are doing it “right”.

I was on the pill for awhile and never had any problems. My friend on the other hand was on the pill and just found out she’s pregnant..

I think that if you two are really set on your future plans, you should use two methods…and I don’t think “pull and pray” is a method (in my opinon anyway). That being said…the pill is, what, 99.?% effective. I think you will be fine, but you never know. Also, if you two are set in the future plans, he should respect that. Just my two cents…

We relied on just the pill (never bothered pulling out) for over five years with no scares. I think you’ll be fine.

You will be fine just taking birth control. No need to use condoms.

I was on the pill and never pulled in the past- but it looks like I have fertility issues. Anyway I think the pill alone should be sufficient period, but if you are on the pill and he pulls out I think that’s pretty safe. I have always been told they only recommend condoms for STD prevention because the pill should be enough. It doesn’t matter how fertile the man is if you are preventing ovulation, if there is no egg there theres nothing to fertilize! Unless you miss a pill Of course!

I was on the pill for years without pull out and was fine. After I got off the pill the pull out method alone wasn’t so effective. We have a 16 month old to prove it 😉

My Darling Husband and I used the pull + pray and the pill for over 9 years with no pregnancies. Came off the pill and stopped pulling and BAM! preggo.
I think you’re good.

Used only the pill for over 10 years and no pulling out at all. Zero pregnancy scares.
Stopped using birth control and got pregnant immediately.
The pill is like 99% effective when used correctly. Adding a condom (which is only like 95% effective) or other protective method doesn’t change your chances.

Pull-out method is useless by itself, but since you are on the pill, I wouldn’t even worry about it!

My husband always refused to use condoms, and I always refused to use birth control, so we used Pull-Out method for nearly 3 years with no problems. 🙂 As long as your hubby has a good sense of when to pull out, I don’t think you should have an issue. We didn’t get pregnant until we stopped pulling out, the first cycle without it. XD

We just use the pill (no condoms, no pull and pray) and I’ve never gotten pregnant. I think you’re worrying yourself a bit much over this. Assuming you don’t miss your pills, the pill is over 99% effective.

@Miss Pez: The pill is supposed to be used as a sole method of birth control (assuming you’re in a monogamous relationship). Yeah it can fail, but if you take it properly it is effective.
I’ve been on it for 10 years and so far so good. Sometimes we do the pull out thing as well.
If it really would be a disaster to get pregnant now, then double (triple?) up. But for the like 1% chance you have of getting pregnant while on the pill, is it really worth it to wear condoms when he hates them? I don’t know, only you can answer that.
We only use condoms if I’m on antibiotics. Neither of us like condoms and trust the pill.
I can be a bit paranoid but so far the pill hasn’t failed me lol. If I were to get pregnant, it wouldn’t be ideal timing, but we could live with it. We’re both adults. We have good jobs.. yadda yadda.
