Thanks! We have started using protection just in case. I got pregnant with DS2 with the first egg ovulated after DS1 so I'm very aware/scared of that happening again. Though if my sex drive suddenly returns and I end up tackling my husband one morning (as I did that morning many years ago) I'll now know I'm ovulating

so very very true.
i think my poor husband is terrified of the day he'll have to beat me off!!!
we are thinking about this too - i had one evening of spotting right at 5 months and i consider that my 'warning' - we have been using withdrawl though because we literally have no other options right now -( no hormones, condoms leak too often ?!, etc etc) i am pretty good with noticing fertile CM which i have had none, i also have zero sex drive which is a very good indicator at this stage.. we are considering the withdrawl kind of a back up method .. its not perfect but it lowers the chance if i were to have some sort of freak ovulation before a period and a long enough LP to conceive - i normally have months and months of cycles before i have a LP long enough to maintain a pregnancy .. though when it happens, it is a one cycle 6 day LP , the next pregnant sort of situation. (that has happened 3 times now..twice around 20 months, the first time around 10 mo and i had a m/c) anyway, i am ok with more kids if it happens.. though i want to do what we can to prevent it - our options are limited and i am not going to let that depress me too much - i know based on my history that chances are good we can avoid based on symptoms with withdrawl until about 18 months, then i'm going to have to get serious, which is hard because my cycles are still not regular and my hormones (sex drive) goes nuts at that point. . i don't know if my cycles will ever regulate while breastfeeding since they never have before.. i really want to get to at least 3.5 years this time before getting pregnant again - i am worn out having 4 kids 25-28 mo apart!!
I use the Contragel Green and it can be used with condoms, FemCap etc. I can't use the N9 it burns badly! I don't like chemicals anyways...
this is safe and natural....
