How to NOT get pregnant

Family planning isn't always about when to have kids... sometimes we have to think about when and how not to get pregnant too.

What methods do you find work best for you?

I used to be on the Nuvaring which was my favorite of the birth controls I tried, but I will not go back on anything hormonal because it messes with me too much. I'm not sure what I may use in the future.

    I combined Natural Family Planning with the pull out method. This was very effective for us and I never got pregnant when I didn't want to. Natural Family Planning was also very effective when it came to trying to get pregnant and it was really helpful that I knew so much about my body and my cycle.

      After a miserable year on the mini pill and a horrible experience with an IUD we decided to just go with Natural family planning. My body just doesn't do well on birth control.

      My body doesn't do well with hormone birth control either.

      My body rejected the IUD and I went into shock. Never again. Plus in the month I haven't been on birth control I've lost 15 lbs.
