anal is an option, if the woman likes anal to begin with. otherwise it's just painal.
i'm glad i'm not the type who likes writing copious amounts of scientifically researched papers, because i'm pretty sure i'm about to google all the ancient and herbal methods of preventing/ending pregnancies. i hadn't heard about the vit c, now i'm all curious
yeah you are
Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
I've been charting my cycle for at least the last 10 years. I do not believe in hormonal BC and have never used it. Once you know what the signs are of ovulation and are able to detect them it isn't that complicated. We avoid sex around ovulation or wear a condom. Even with lube the sex with a condom isn't all that, but I don't want to be pregnant at 40. My kids are 17 & 15.....if things go as planned we will be empty nesters in 3 years! And looking forward to it!
I use the copper IUD as well. Have had it for four years this December It did hurt to put it in, and every month after my cramps were really bad--BUT--my mother also had terrible cramping for years, so I think I'm more prone to it. Every month my cramping varies, mostly depending on how healthy I ate :lol: But, to me, it's worth not having to deal with condoms, taking a pill everyday and dealing with hormones, and all the other methods. but like last month, my cramping was VERY minimal, was nice
The withdrawal method though... wild horses couldn't drag me out once i'm in, it'd be disastrous for me to go that way with a woman!
Do what you love and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. if you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop, they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Some opportunities only come once, seize them.
The point of condoms is that sex is most tempting and awesome while ovulating. Ovulation is when the body puts out hormones that make the brain go "I want sex. Lots of sex. But I might be ovulating...nah there's no way I could be ovulating, cause sex is great."
ITA sapphire!! The worst thing about charting is avoiding sex just when your body is gearing up for it! Did it for 4 yrs (2 for contraception and 2 for conception). I know when I'm ovulating but really don't like condoms. So... Now that the contraceptive power of exclusive breastfeeding and 2 x 2yrs lactational amenorrhea and having small children in your bed has worn off... Vasectomy!
Yay! Quick. Easy. And painless. For me!
Oh and I think paw paw seeds were used as an abortifacient, too. I used to know lots of them but then I had children.
We have resorted to condoms and I hate them but I hate the thought of more children more. The only time I even want sex is when I am ovulating so although I used the billings method when conceiving my son, it is of no use to me now. My hubby is getting neutered shortly, hopefully that will fix the problem lol.
LOL huckie! That's what my DH called it too! haha! And my brother was given a jar by one of his mates - to keep his boys in!
Despite his week long misery face afterwards, DH seems to have survived. Just gotta keep him at arm's length until he gets the all clear - I have 2 friends with that 'extra' child and while I love my kids, another would just do me in.
