    I voted for BC pills, but we also either use a condom or pull out. We’re doubling up just in case!

    Just BC – we know that there is always the potential for an unplanned pregnancy, no matter what the BC choice, and we are okay with that (even though we would *prefer* to wait a few more years)

    We only use condoms. I’ve been off the pill now for years and since I’m a little older I’m a little concerned with my fertility level. I’ve been prepping my body to be all natural so when the time is right to start trying, it’ll hopefully go smoothly.

    I know there isn’t any proof at all that says it’ll be harder to get pregnant after being on the pill (except for what the label says your body needs to get back into system) but I just don’t wanna chance it.

    I use the Nuvaring and I lOVE it! I was never perfect about taking the pill and found that the nuvaring was perfect for me….however i know my sister hated it….so it doesn’t work for everyone, but it is a great option that I think weirds some people out.

    I have Implanon. In my opinion it is the BEST birth control. In the past I had used the pill (seasonique) and Nuvaring. I hated Nuvaring and don’t really have complaints about the pill. The reason I got off the pill was because I felt like I was already on enough daily medications for my PCOS. If I can cut one pill out then I should.

    The Implanon is implanted in your arm and about the size of a matchstick. You can’t feel when they put it in you and you can’t see it or really feel it (unless you are specifically searching for it) after it is all healed up.

    Because I have children already and don’t plan on having any more…I use the Merana..IUD….its very safe and it’s good for 5 years!!!! plus it makes my cycle very short and very low key!

    Condoms and pull out method together. We’re extra careful. No babies just yet, please 🙂

    We use condoms. I made the choice to completely go off of hormonal BC a year ago. I tried several types and my drs just wouldn’t listen to me when I told them that it was awful. Condoms seem to be working fine for us which is great.

    I am surprised how many of you pull out as a back-up method. Never done that so I have no opinion about, just an observation 🙂

    We’re living with my parents to save up for a house.  Impossible to get pregnant in this situation. 😉
