There's also the Patch, which she would leave on for three weeks, then take off for a week.

And then there's the NuvaRing, which she'd put in and leave there for three weeks, then take out for a week. The only caveat with the ring is that it can fall out. Imagine that on a dance floor.

Vasectomy.

It not only works great as a means of contraception, but I NEVER tell a woman that I am in a relationship with that I have one.

So when the call comes in and she says she is pregnant - I know that she was cheating on me.

Once and only once, I let a partner know that I would be there for the "baby" and take responsibility for it, etc etc and then when she was past the point of no return: abortion. I had my attorney serve her with the documentation that I was sterile and a letter from me. I have never known such fury and wrath before in my life. She was livid. Oh, well. If it walks like ****, looks like a ****, acts like a ****, and Fs like a ****. It's a ****.

She was a ****.

My body can't hack the hormones. I tried a few times when I was having other issues. The pill & patch both made me ill. I refuse to use them.

Sweet. That happened to a friend of mine, too. She totally got hers, though. She bought this weird cactus from Mexico, and one day it got bigger and bigger on one side. When it started pulsing and making this chittering noise, she got really scared and called 911. The police told her to get out the house, but it was too late ... the cactus exploded with millions of these rare and deadly spiders, and they ate her.

We have always used the pull out method, as I don't want to subject my body to anything and we both don't like condoms. I kept track of my fertile days too, so we were more careful around those times. The only times I got prego was when he DIDN'T pull out and it was on a fertile day. FYI, doctors will not give IUD's to women who have not had children yet, because it is more difficult and painful to insert.
That is absolutly not true. I know of women that have used the IUD recently and way back in 1970's that were young and single or married and didnt have children.

I could never go with the pull out. I've never known a guy I could trust in the heat of passion to pull out and Im too spontaneous to keep tractk of "my fertile days" and plan for sex. I cant even keep up with when my period is since I went off the pill.

I had a friend years ago that was allergic to condoms, and she couldn't use the pill either. I wonder how many kids she has now. She was an intelligent woman though, so I'm betting she had took other measures to prevent more kids eventually.


I tried for years to have my son, and then my daughter was a surprise. I had my tubes tied because I was getting up in age (35), and to reduce risk of other wonderful surprises. My preferred method now is a good stable relationship where we've both been tested, otherwise CONDOMS!!

I honestly haven't experienced any bad side effects and my sex drive is about the same. As far as gaining weight, I think as long as a girl watches what she eats and works out (which I do anyway), she should be fine. I don't think low dose hormone birth control makes you gain any weight actually.

I think its changed since then. Many doctors nowadays are very evasive about putting IUDs in young women who have not had children. I've read it is due to the fact that if you get a STD or infection in there while having the IUD in, you can become sterile. They are probably worried about getting sued.
