I know alot of people that were on birth control (the shot) and they got pregnant because they missed a shot. Well, I don't really want to get on BC because of the fear of gaining a bunch of weight. So since condoms are a form of contraceptive, I thought I'd give it a try of using them regularly and then just stop...hoping it would have the same effect. It's just a shot until I can get in to see my ob/gyn to try other options. It's also just like some others that have always used condoms but forgot to use one some time and they ended up pregnant.View Thread
I'm having the same issue. My period is usually off as well. It alternates from being on time to not being on time. One month my cycle will be 29 days, the next 45 days, and the next 33 days...and so forth. I have also been TTC. I was on Clomid for a couple months last summer, but it didn't seem to be working so I stopped taking it. I'm currently on day 5 of my cycle....I'm just going to guess and test for ovulation in a couple weeks. Also, something new I'm trying is using condoms during sex except for when I should be ovulating.View Thread
My boyfriend and I have been TTC for a very long time now. I tried Clomid for a few months but it didn't seem to help. The doctor kept upping my dosage but it hasnt made any difference. I started to think of some people I know and how they ended up pregnant. They all had a common denominator....they were on the shot and missed a dose. So I thought..hey, why not give it a shot. Well, I'm scared of going on birth control..cuz I've heard of people gaining weight while on it. So we are trying something different...we started using condoms thinking that maybe if we use condoms for a few months and then skip a time or two , maybe that'll do the trick. What do ya'll think of that?View Thread
