What do you use?
I currently have the implant fitted and love not having periods because mine were horrendous. I am also allergic to latex so the majority of condoms were out and had to get expensive Avanti ones.
However if I ever get to the stage of havign sex again I will insist upon the use of condoms because who knows where he might have been beforehand! Although at what stage do you stop using condoms?

We just use condoms, I'm unfortunately very limited in choice as i suffer from hemiplaegic migraines and can't have any combined hormones. Tried the mini pill once but it didn't agree with me. They work for us and haven't ever had any 'scares', H did prefer it when we were TTC though!

Hubs and I used condoms when first together, then hubs had a uti and the local cottage hospital wanted to give him an mot. We discussed how good it is to have it 100% confirmed that you're fine, so i decided to get checked out too. After we both got the thumbs up (insert smug icon) we stopped using condoms really. Once you find "jumping off the bus before it stops" works, you can't help sticking with that method. Turns out that I was probably so hyperthyroid at that point anyway that I was infertile. Took us 11 months of "staying on the bus" to conceive anyway. I am wondering what to do after baby comes though.

Mycrogynon pill for me. Although I missed two pills in my last pack (doh) and my period has gone awol.
Not sure how long on the condom front, have only been in that position once with H as 19 year old and I think it was a few months before we stopped using them.

I'm on cerezette, which i think is a mini-pill? It works for me, i have no periods, and other than a bit of irregular bleeding every 6 months or so i've been fine. H was supposed to have been having the snip after S was born, but decided against it at the last minute.
I think H and I stopped using condoms after about 3 weeks of us sleeping together and me being on the pill.

We're using condoms. I wanted to come off the pill, as i've had the depo injection or pill since I was 18, and wanted to give my body a break. I'm wanting my H to get the snip.

Do you feel the responsibility for contracpetion is on you as opposed to OH? Just a general pondering.

In other relationships yes, very much, but not this one. Hubs really doesn't want me going on any form of hormone because he understands that they mess with me so much. So he's happy to find an alternative.

I use the micronor pill. I keep thinking of something more long term but can't be bothered to do anything about it atm.

I've always been on the pill and used condoms (pill was for bad period pains nothing else) When H and I got together he said he didn't like condoms so I asked him to have checks before we DTD. He did, it was fine, I stayed on the pill until we started trying for a baby. I'd happily never go back on the pill again.
