I am in a commited relationship that is going on 3 years now. I am on the pill but my bf still pulls out and has never finished inside of me. We both feel that 99% safe still isn't safe enough when the thought of bringing another life into this world is concerned, which is why he still continues to pull out or wear a condom if he is going to finish inside.
We have talked about the desire to 'finish inside' but we both agree that it still needs to be safe.
If we make use of the time before and after ovulation using the calendar method in combination with the pill should this still provide a very high level of safety against pregnancy? Should we also consider spermicide as well?
This isn't really a topic that you can casually bring up when talking to your friends so I'm hoping for a little help here instead...
Remember that if you're on the pill, you aren't ovulating, at all. Personally, i only use the pill and i've never become pregnant, and my boyfriend always finishes inside me. You can always monitor yourself and find out which days you're 'supposed' to ovulate, but again, you aren't ovulating on the pill so using any kind of tempature montiors won't help you out.
If you're still worried about pregnancy you're just going to have to continue to use a condom or something like that. But if you're using the pill 100% correctly, i think you can let loose
I'm on the pill (for about 8 months now) and have been quite accurate with taking it so my boyfriend always finishes inside me without additional contraception. As long as you are confident with your pill-taking habits then the pill really is a very effective way of avoiding pregnancy. I wouldn't worry too much, but if you REALLY want to be sure and you find condoms a bother, consider the diaphram, spermicide or vaginal sponge?
Be sure that you and your partner arent infected with STD's.
I too have been with my current boyfriend for 3 years. I have been on the pill, and he finishes inside me everytime. The only thing you want to be carefull of is if your on any kind of anti-biotics. Then you must use another BC with the pill. The anti-biotics could cause your BCP to fail, so make sure you use condom or something else to prevent.
Originally posted by Blastoff9600: Strand,you have to be careful because even used correctly the pill can and does fail...go to the pregnancy board and talk to women on there about who has birth control babies or currently pregnant.
It is still very possible to ovulate while on the pill
though with most women they dont while on the pill.
I'm well aware the pill has a failure rate, however, it is a very low failure rate if used properly. The pill is desiged to be the ONLY form of birth control used in a relationship, but many women do choose to use condoms to be extra careful. I've been on birth control for quite a few years and never experienced pregnancy. And the pill is all i use. The failure rate is nothing to panic about if you are using the pill properly.
Frankly. i believe the majorty of women you become pregnant on the pill don't use it correctly.
