Most regular birth controls are said to be 99% effective. Condoms have been found to be 85% effective. The mini pills is around the same as condoms I think. Charting has been found to be nearly 100% effective when it's used properly.
I personally have been using Fertility Awareness Method for 3 year and NEVER been pregnant when I didn't want to be. Before that I used condoms the right way every time DH and had sex. We never got pregnant until we started TTC.
I'm not saying birth control doesn't fail but I just don't think it happens as often as is claimed on here.
I know 3 people right now that are pregnant with "oops" babies. My sister never went back for her BC shot after the first one and didn't use condoms. My best friend claims her birth control didn't work but then told me she only took 2 pills the month she got PG. Another friend just didn't use anything but told her mom that the BC failed.
