Re: How are you avoiding?

After an misunderstanding this month with withdrawal, I've set up more strict tta rules I use NFP + opks and so no dtd after CD9 until two days post confirmed O w/o protection. I am getting a diaphragm next week as a backup during fertile times since condoms are a pain and I can't/won't take hormones. I hope it's perfect for us.

Re: How are you avoiding?

I practice the Fertility Awareness Method and love it! I have just completed my 4th month with success During my fertile days we use a condom, and during my peak fertility we avoid (it's only 2 days).

I had the implanon rod in my arm before that and for about 3 months straight I had all the pregnancy symptoms I had with my son. It was terrible.

I love FAM and recommend it to all my friends!

This makes me so sad! You can't even get a hug??

Does anyone else have differing opinions than their spouse regarding having another baby in the future?
We have differing opinions too. We avoided for the first two years of our marriage (I was only 18 yo ) and TTC for 8 longggggg months before I got pregnant with DD who is only 5 weeks now. Before she was born DH wanted to wait 6 mo before TTC again and I wanted to wait 2 years. NOW he wants to wait a year, and I want to do nothing and if we have a surprise baby, awesome! if not then TTC when she is a yo.

If we do TTA then I'm going to get the IUD.. so I'm hoping I can just 'forget' to make the appt for a while

Has anyone relied on bfing? Does it work that long?
depends on your body. I made it to 5 days shy of 23mths with ds3. 18mths with ds2, and 6mths with ds1 (bf trouble).

I'm charting though so I know for a fact that I never O'd until 2wks ago

^^ What she said Except I'm BFing my 9 month old and have NO signs of impending ovulation. I'm only nursing 3 times per day on average so I'm really surprised AF hasn't come back yet. Not that I'm complaining.

Re: How are you avoiding?

Here is info on withdrawal.

http://www.plannedparenthood.org/hea...ethod-4218.htm

I will say when we were new at it we did get pregnant, and it does take time to learn and practice to use more effectively. Dh wants the V, but I would be fine with NFP and other natural methods...At least for the next 5-10 years but beyond that I think I would opt for a permanent solution as we get older..From the time ds was 6 months to 32 months we did withdrawal without getting pregnant, then began ttc...Though I am going to admit I am not as fertile, have a possible luteal phase defect where I ovulate late so I may not get as many sticky embryos as a more fertile person. It took use 4 months to get a BFP when trying, then lost the baby after a week...Then from then it took 11 months for another BFP, we were DTD regularly 3-4 a week, and I began charting at the 9 month mark so that is when I discovered the possible luteal phase defect.

Re: How are you avoiding?

We use an IUD. I have one birth control baby and one NFP baby less than 18 months apart so I need something a little more reliable. For the 3 months after DS2 was born I basically told SO to not even look at me for fear I would end up pregnant a third time. I was BFing but we still had 1 scare and decided that we weren't responsible enough to rely on condoms or withdrawl (or abstinence for that matter :P) Neither of us wants any more, but we're not 100% sure that won't change so, for now Paraguard works for us!
