    I know people are cynical about the natural method, which is why I started the thread. If it works for someone for 3 years, and then they get pregnant, it's still probably 99% effectiveness, right?

    I've been fertility charting for a few months now, and it's amazing how well you begin to read your body... Surely your physical symptoms of fertility can be better prevention that some piece of copper inserted inside you?

This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    The yielded result was somewhat disappointing...

    Haha. Not as much as my bf is going to love you when I tell him Rich's assertions about the withdrawal method... You guys can probably expect a Christmas ham.

    Well, tell him I'm gonna come over there and beat his ass if he doesn't get it out well ahead of time. I don't want to take the blame for any consequences of an untimely withdrawal. A bone-in ham would be appropriate.

    Have you considered sterilization? Seems like a better way to go if you're sure you don't want kids.

    In case of mistakes, keep a Plan B/morning after pill around (it is NOT an abortion, just prevention) and be prepared for the hormonal roller coaster that follows. I hate them (the mood swings for the couple weeks after taking it are awful), but after having needed them for accidents & mess-ups a few times, I'm terribly grateful.

    I can be um... clingy. So withdrawal wasn't a safe option for us. You have to be able to withdraw :-P.

    The copper IUD works by inflaming the lining of the uterus, making it an inhospitable environment for sperm. If an egg is fertilized, it can't stick to the lining. They're highly effective, but like most forms of birth control that aren't just manual control (what I would consider "natural planning", utilizes no foreign object/substance directly to prevent pregnancy), there are still risks and they can be very bad if you are one of those 1%.

    So far so good on the calendar method for a few years now.

    EDIT: Nameless, do they actually let you take Plan B home? In my experience around here, you have to take them in the presence of the vendor.
