How many of you have gotten pregnant while using condoms? DH & I are using condoms while we are trying to figure out whether we want to TTC and I'm just kind of hoping the decision will be made without us.

Anyone??

We got pregnant both times while using condoms as birth control but we weren't using a condom when we got pregnant, if that makes any sense. For a couple days following my period we would never use a condom. We knew that there was still a chance of getting pregnant but it was our way of throwing caution to the wind and letting things happen if they were meant to. With my first, we decided that I would hold off on law school and we'd start a family "soon". Five days later we found out I was pregnant. This time we decided we'd start "trying' in about six months and a week later found out I was pregnant. I think the risk of using a condom (properly) everytime and getting pregnant is pretty low.

Ok, I was using FAM to avoid and we were using condoms and I got pregnant. However I do not know for sure if I got pregnant before or during the time we were using condoms. We used them pretty far in advance before I was fertile so I'm inclined to blame the condoms, although none ever obviously malfunctioned.

I got pregnant with my DS using condoms. We had been using them for 4 years previously and I never got pregnant, and nothing seemed to malfunction that time either. I guess it was meant to be!

It was the best thing that ever happened to us!

We were doing a combo of FAM and condoms and got pg this time (who would've thought day 5 was not "safe"?!? )I was still BFing 6 times a day with my then 17 mos old so I'm sure that played a part! Next time we're using at least 2-3 birth control methods at once, LOL!!
