+ 1 for diaphragm. When I had my IUD (copper) removed after 11 years I switched to a diaphragm. Found it highly effective and, once you get the hang of it, easy to put in

I have used this for over a year so far and love it. I also chart, and find that Lady-Comp is very conservative.

Congratulations! I know a bit about MTHFR but did not know its caused a blood clotting issue. Mthfr is not a clotting disorder. ARe you taking methyl-folate?

So if you have three children, is vasectomy for your hubby an option. I mean it would be necessary at my house or their would be no more sex but I understand that you may have a different belief.

I had a doctor who was pro natural family planning (which we're going to do). Some places will offer classes to learn how this is done. The doctor also told me that condoms don't work as well as they claim. The high success rates can be attributed to spermicide or the fact that when they did the testing, they didn't make sure the women were ovulating when they did the test. She told me that the condom is actually permeable enough for some sperm to pass through. I'm not totally against condoms. It only takes one sperm to fert. an egg, but at least you're reducing the numbers, right?

I did FAM and would just put in the cervical cap as a precautionary measure whenever I feeling signs of fertility mixed with desire, so I wouldn't have to worry about self control in the moment.

I'm sure this method works well for some, but two of my three children were born of it. I wouldn't do it again unless failure was tolerated. Both times my ovulation came much earlier than any other time in my life and I didn't detect it. Both times my husband was going to be specially available at that specific time, and it's as if my body knew.

It's not reliable on it's own. It must be used with condoms and has a high incidence of irritation/allergic reaction.

I would recommend reading "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" ASAP. Fertility awareness mixed with some self-restraint on the part of my husband has worked quite well for us. Cervical caps are good too. I like that you can leave them in for 48 hours, and even make your own spermicide if you are sensitive to chemicals.

Look into getting a diaphragm. Have used one for 20+ years with no problems.

Read "Taking Charge of Your Fertility", then: 1) Track your morning temperature and your cervical fluid, takes 30 seconds every day.
2) Have sexy fun. 3) On fertile days, use condoms, and have sexy fun.

That's all there is to it.

Women don't have "vasectomies" men have them. Women have their tubes tied which can cause early menopause to occur. Google it.

Honestly, I'd try the IUD again. It really is your best bet.

FAM, which I used for years, is great if you actually use it as intended but damn, damn, damn it's hard to abstain when fertile and if you're not going to abstain when fertile then condoms, diaphragm or cervical cap becomes necessary anyway....

Please look up the LadyComp. I've used it for five years and have never had a problem. Never. It actually was the one device that let me know that I was not ovulating due to celiac disease. There are pharmacies in Canada you can order it from. It is not cheap, but well worth it in the long term. Good luck!

I use condoms all the time (found out that hormones are out for me for life because of a migraine condition during puberty which puts me at high risk for stroke). I, however, really really couldn't handle any accidental pregnancy so I made an appt at the local clinic to talk about a cervical cap fitting. I want to track my ovulation, and on my ovulating days combine the use of a cervical cap and condom. This is a low commitment option at least, but the use of a condom requires the cooperation of both partners. I did use condoms successfully for over 2 years as my only birth control, but I like the idea of having a back up in case of failure, hence the idea to do ovulation tracking/cervical cap.

I recently read an article about the LadyComp that LastingOne mentioned above. It sounds totally bomb! http://thehairpin.com/2011/06/lady-comp-how-i-quit-hormones

You take your temperature with the machine every morning, and it tells you what days it's safe to get busy. Awesome.

Are you long-term monogamous, and finished reproducing? If so, a vasectomy might be your best bet. It's very safe and effective, and obviously won't give your body any problems.

I had cancer so I could not use anything with hormones. What I could use was a Copper IUD. I had no problems at all with it, not even heavy bleeding like some have claimed. It just felt a little weird the first week. After that I never noticed it.
