DO you practice safe sex even with your SO?

Birth control, condoms, IUD, DEPO shot ex.....

or do you play the field with the saying "God would never give me more than I can handle." and just have sex and if you get pregnant so be it?

Im seeing what birth control best fits me and my lifestyle. my SO is kind of offended when I suggest using a condom so i need something else lol

  • We used birth control because we didn't want to get pregnant. My family is VERY fertile, so if we left it up to God, we would compete with the Duggars. We used condoms for 13 years and now I have an IUD.

  • LOL, we don't use anything right now, but that is because I am already pregnant. When not wanting to get pregnant we use birth control and condoms, and yet somehow I still got pregnant! LOL, I told my hubby after this one he might have to double wrap!

  • I chart with FAM. Birth control reacts very badly with my body so once I learned FAM I never went back. I have never been pregnant when I did not want to be and only have to worry about protecting ourselves 5 days a month when I have fertile mucus. I chart so even if those days change I know it and do not have to worry.

  • I got pregnant with the last child after he came on my leg, by the way. That's hard to explain when you're 17, and even harder to explain when you're 40! Right now we use condoms, spermicide and I take pills. But I've gotten pregnant with that combination before (Kid #2) so we're looking into vasectomies and tubal ligations now.
