    I am currently on the pill but I plan to switch to the LadyComp within the next couple of months. There isn’t an option for that on your poll 🙂 

    ETA: I guess it could be “other” but the other ones you have listed are all hormonal. Maybe you should list non-hormal like people doing NFP/charting?

    We’re married and not TTC for another couple of years and I’m on the pill.  Have been since before we were married to.

    We want kids soon-ish, but that’s a decision we have to make before I get off the pill.  I can’t get pregnant while I’m taking most of the meds I have for my migraines or it’d be really bad juju for babycakes.   So pill it is.  In fact I think if there was any chance I’d be sexually active (I’m married, so…) they’d require some kind of bc.

    We use a diaphragm and I’m trying to start charting as well.

    Most of my friends stayed on the pill (or whatever method they were using before the wedding) until they were almost ready to TTC. A couple of friends who were on the pill or ring and always used condoms or POM on top of the hormonal method did stop the secondary thing after the wedding. 

    After I went off the pill in preparation of TTC, we have been much more lax and relying on FAM, POM, and/or condoms. But that’s different than just because we are married.

    There are no options for IUD or sterilization unless they are indeed “other”.

    I stayed on the pill for the first six months of my marriage, then I decided to give my body a break from the hormones and we used condoms. Now we’re NTNT (ok, maybe sorta TTC) 🙂
