But you can't get a good and accurate basal body temperature reading if you haven't had like around 4 straight hours of sleep.... which doesn't happen most of the time with two babies under the age of 3. So! Condoms!
We also found that if your man has any discomfort from wearing a condom, (like a lot of circumcised men can on their scrotal webbing area) get Trojan brand magnum condoms. Seriously. :) They're not any actually bigger than other condoms, they're just super stretchy and (evidently) a lot more comfortable. I like them much better because he does.
But condoms are so reliable for us that I'm even comfortable using them and having sex on fertile days. :)
 


you gotta buy them though! my husband won't buy them because he's all embarrassed about it, like if a guy buys them they're going to be like yeah right, but if a woman buys them then she probably needs them.... so stupid! but don't ask him to go out and buy them or if you do, and he doesn't get them that's why!
makes for a nice surprise too.... hey! look what I got you! *surprise* makes for a fun into to more fun. :)

Trojan was TERRIBLE(no offense to the likers of it, obviously, but it caused me pain and he couldn't feel a damn thing). But I've recently been charting my ovulation to be extra safe, and we abstain from sex during those times.


Oh! I wanted to tell you! There's a trojan brand magnum THIN condom.... :) :) :) My hubby has a lack of sensitivity from circumcision, and he definitely says they're the best of everything we've tried. Haven't seen the crown brand ever though....
The lube with the condoms is a big deal too........ :)
