a little T : has anyone here used an ovulation predictor kit to augment their NFP/FAM? I've heard it can be helpful and cost about as much as BCP.

Have you all heard of that new form of permanant birth control where they insert little coils into the fallopian tubes? It's non surgical, they go through the cervix to the uterus. After a period of time the tubes build up scar tissue around the coils and bingo-- you are sterilzed. No hormones or anything. I was thinking about doing this in 5 years or so when we are sure we are done, rather than dh getting snipped.

Isn't the cervical cap only like 60% effective after you've had kids?

It's called Essure (http://www.essure.com/consumer/c_homepage.aspx). I know a few people who looked into it, but were turned off by the inexperience of the practioners (burned by norplant, I guess). Also, sometimes it doesn't take and you have to get tied anyway. I think it could be a very nice non surgical way to reduce fertility if not prevent conception entirely.

I'd be interested in hearing about this, too. Especially if you've had experience with Persona. It's a system they sell in Europe, not in the US (maybe they do now?), but I've seen it available on the Internet. I am thinking about this for extra security (very fertile! - with DD1 it took 10 days after going off the Pill and with DD2 it was about 2 months of not actively trying...) although it's kind of expensive. Not as expensive as another child, though!
