Say you're TTA and your barrier broke/slipped or your partner failed to get out 'in time', do you have a backup plan? Are emergency contraceptives or contragestives (implantation inhibitors) an option or do you just assume pregnancy and act in protection of it?

That would depend on how serious you are about TTA, I suppose.
I would like another child, DH does not at this time, possibly ever. We did have an "oops" situation last cycle. I didn't discover it until it would have been too late to take E.C., but I wouldn't have taken it anyway. Hormones do a number on my body, and having taken E.C. before I didn't want to go through that again. I have some issues that make conception a little more difficult (PCOS, so irregular cycles,sometimes annovulatory, etc.) so we felt comfortable just waiting it out. I wasn't pregnant, but acted like I was until I knew for sure.
If I absolutely could not chance a pregnancy, I would have taken E.C. and dealt with the side effects.
