Kieran is a nuvaring baby. I was using it correctly.



However I have a friend who tells everyone she was on bc when she got pregnant, but she admitted to me she wasn't, she just doesn't want to look dumb.

I was on birth control when I got pregnant with DD. I was taking it right but I'd also been taking antibiotics that lowered how effective it was. I apparently get pregnant easily though. lol I got pregnant with my 2nd our 1st month TTC.

I used condoms but no other form of birth control because they had severely bad effects on me and I couldnt stay on them... But after 3 months of actively having sex and actively using condoms I got pregnant :) lol. I'm a religious person though so I really feel like when it's meant to be it is deff gonna be ;)

I was TTC with both my children. We were successful the first cycle of trying each time, it makes me very glad we were careful before then :).



A friend of mine has a 'pull out' baby. I don't doubt it, but I do wonder if they knew the rules or if he pulled out on time. I want to ask but it seems a little personal :D.

We used condoms and I got pregnant. The sound time (ended in miscarriage) when used condoms/sponges. My mom got pregnant on every type of birth control besides the shot, including iud but that's because it slipped out of place or something.



Some people are just really fertile. Now we use 3 condoms, with sponges, and he pulls out. We need at least 3-4 years before another one.

DD was a birth control and condom baby. I threw my birth control at her dad when I found out I was pregnant "Won't be needing these anymore!!" :lol:
She was just meant to be.
This baby was a "lets just see what happens" baby. Well, it happened, the first try.
I iz fertileee lol

I have had bad side effects with every possible birth control so I always used a spermicidal foam as well as a condom. Thats how I got pregnant.

with our first we knew what we were doing..we willingly had sex without protection but by the time we had decided to just wait for kids I found out I was pregnant...



...this time around we were using natural family planning and condoms randomly..but this baby was a drunken night of recklessness for us..lol...DH and I didn't realize I ovulated late and then a few weeks later I found out I was pregnant..lol..



both kids were accidentally conceived technically...but I know of people who try and try and try and just can't get pregnant and then people who don't want kids and just keep getting pregnant...DH has now decided he's getting a vasectomy just to avoid more accidental babies..lol

I was on he pill for 5 years and never got pregnant. We tried the condoms and "pull-out" method. He didn't always pull out in time or at all but would occassionaly and we ended up getting pregnant 3 months after being off the pill.
I knew nothing about ovulation and when it happened, then. Lol We now only use the pull out method but I track my cycles so I know when to use condoms and when to definitely pull out. It has worked for almost a year now and not pregnant yet :)

Quoting smartass.:" "the rules" lol :P"


There are rules :). After the man ejaculates, he must urinate before continuing :). Also, he can't come out as he is ejaculating, he must pull out a little before.

We are just using the withdrawal method but I want to start using fertility awareness too. I just don't sleep 3 hours before waking in the morning to take my temperature yet. Hopefully soon :). I am paying attention to my cervical mucus but not enough to trust that I have indeed ovulated that month, so we only use Withdrawal. I have had 4 periods (ovulated each time) and haven't gotten pregnant yet :).
