We arn't using it so as to definately not get pregnant. We are in the right position to have a baby so it wouldnt be the end of the world!. I used to take a strong pill and for quite a long time without taking breaks so i was told it could take a long time to get back to normal, and tbh i am a complete control freak and i would go POAS crazy if i had a long cycle! So its more personal preference to try and wait for a pattern in cycle length. We were using condoms but i hate them! It just seems like its a lot more complex then they told us at school to make a baby so i thought better to ask the opinion of MN instead!
Me and ex used that method when we planned no.3. I stopped taking the pill in March and planned to wait for it to clear my system and ttc properly after April to avoid a Christmas baby... No.3 is 10 tomorrow, I got pregnant within a week or so of coming off the pill, lol.
Yes it happened to me. A colleague had done it for years and never got pregnant so I thought it would work for us We used withdrawal for about 3 cycles and then I got pregnant. He always pulled out in time but it must have been the Pre swimmers that did it. It was a very happy surprise. Subsequent planned pregnancies were conceived on 1st of 2nd cycle so very fertile.
