Hey there. What birth control method were you using when you had an "oops" pregnancy that you weren't expecting? Was it a type of birth control pill, IUD, or even after tubal ligation? Just curious!

I put the pill, but it was the pill and condoms together.
"Back up your birth control" they said, "It will protect you" they said :P

Not that Im complaining I love my two :)

  My sister got pregnant on the pull out method the first time..... 

She continued to use that meathod and got pregnant again. 

(She does not want another baby...)

Does failing to use birth control count?

I can't take any method of birth control. I am highly sensitive to side effects and with having to be up for my kids and what not I can't afford it. I also am against medication unless you absolutely need it to save your life. We don't use condoms because then my husband has a hard time really feeling it and so forth. so in 9 1/2 years we will have 3 children by the end of this year.

Mini pill for me. I have migraines and the doc said that one was best to use. She said the fail rate was really low like 1%.

All mine were planned and I get pregnant easily but wowsa. I don't even know how I'd react to that. Probably "I took this crappy pill daily for THIS?!"
