When I got married, I thought, "You're having sex, you go on the pill." Right?! The only option, besides condoms...? Well, after a year or so and 40 extra pounds later--and added depression--I decided hormones were to blame. So then we tried the diaphragm which I liked but dh didn't, the spermicide film--the texture was too thick when "melted", and, at last, spermicide gel. It sometimes interrupts the mood, but mostly it's been great! We can be spontaneous and I don't have to keep immaculate records of my fertility cycle. I am VERY interested in NFP and practice it half-heartedly!, but my dh and I are so inconsistent!
Anyway, I love this thread!
Tessamami: "The thing that I most dislike about NFP when practiced alone (without the use of a barrier or spermicide during fertile days) is that when a woman feels her horniest, she's just not gonna get any - and that SUCKS."
--I TOTALLY AGREE!!! You're TOO funny!
