Condoms or diaphragms only? if so did you use them correctly or mes up with then which resulted in pregnancy? I'm curious because online it says they are about a 15% failure rate...

Ugh we messed up. Hormonal birth control was wreaking havoc on me. Dh and I decided using condoms would be just fine. I have a few cocktails one freaking time....

I haven't. I used condoms only for 2 years after having my first. Now I'm using them again. I have PCOS and I am on metformin which makes me VERY fertile. Still no oopses for me. I sure hope it isn't just a matter of time.

I heard that diaphragms can be less effective if you've already had a baby.

I have not gotten pregnant using condoms.
I've never used diaphragms.

We were using condoms on and off when I got pregnant with #1. We used a combo of nfp and condoms when I got pregnant with this one...
