  • I have gotten pregnant on the pill, with a condom and twice on depo. Honestly the only thing that has worked for me was getting my husband fixed!

  • Well condoms worked if he only wore them. The pills NEVER worked for me. So now I track my ovulation cycle and do it that way. It takes you to really know your body! So far I haven't had any oops! I even tried the Mirena and well that really messed my insides up. I don't advise anyone gettingt that thing. It works for some but not all, just like anything else I suppose.
    Good Luck.
