I have decided to come off the pill but i am so nervous about using condoms (with no bc to back it up) We will wear the correctly and make sure everything is correct but have any of you ladies gotten pregnant while using condoms?

I was not able to be on the pill because I had bad, life threatening reactions to it, so my husband and I used condoms only as our birth control method for 10 years.  I then had my tubes tied after the birth of our second child.

In 10 years of using nothing but condoms I never got pregnant unless I wanted to get pregnant.  ( when I had our kids it was deliberate and planned).  We never had one break or fall off or any of those other things you hear about.  10 years and no issues whatsoever.  

Yes..things can happen and just because that is my experience it might not be yours....but I honestly feel like if they are used correctly, condoms are a great, safe form of birth conrol.

WE use them and no problems so far. I don't take birth control because I am nursing.

Nope. I never did. Its highly unlikely. Try NFP if just the condoms make you nervous. GL!

Both my pregnancies were a result of broken condoms. After my second, I had an IUD inserted. I chose the Copper-T because hormones and I have never been friends. Mirena is famous for curtailing periods, but it is hormone based. The IUD isn't for everybody, I know, but I swore by mine, I wore one for 20 years altogether, and had it removed only because I no longer needed B/C. You might want to see what women who wear or have worn IUD's have to say at the IUD Support Group, here in CM, or the Yahoo Group "New IUD"

No, never. I have never had a condom break, I hear that happens from improper use. But if that is to ever happen, go run to the pharmacy and pick up plan b. :-)
