  • Spermicide gel, it worked for us, and I was happy with it, but I'm not sure I would recommend it, I hear it isn't very reliable for a lot of people, and it's kind of messy.

  • Just condoms, which suck. And pulling out, which I know isn't very reliable, and which also sucks.

  • Condoms which I didn't like, rhythm method which I liked and worked well but not foolproof, and now I have my tubes tied - wonderful

  • We've used the withdrawal (pull-out) method since June 2012. No babies yet. I also track ovulation, so I know which days he doesn't have to pull out.
