WHAT WERE SOME OF THE MOST BOGOUS THINGS YOUR WERE TOLD TO DO NOT TO GET PREGNANT. (BESIDES BC AND ABSTINENCE)
1. PULL OUT

I'm no nurse or doctor but I had a miscarriage a couple years ago and I went to talk to someone because I couldn't understand how it happenned. I was on the pill and we use protection 90% of the time( FH is freaked out when it comes to this). Anyway the impossible did happen. I was told some very interesting things:
1. I was on the same BC since I was 13 (I was prescribed it at a young age for cramps not because I was sexually active LOL not that it matters). But the pill I was on had a low estrogen level for my weight and the doctor/therpist told me I should have been switched once I was aroud 130 lbs. So the BC I was on wasn't effective... VERY SCARY!
2. Most BC pills have a one hour window and you need to take the pill the same time every day for it to be effective. if you forget make sure you take it ASAP. I didn't know about the one hour window. I would take it in the morning every day but on the weekends i would sleep in, thus I would miss that window on the weekends.
3. OK this may be TMI: if he pre-ejaculates (which most men do just a tiny bit) this can pregnate you as well. If you have a condom on and take it off, make sure he washes it before he enters you again. The lady told me this is another method people get pregnant hat they don't think about.
Pretty scry stuff that i didn't know about. Good information to know though. Hope everythign works out Tara

And thanks for the words of caution. I love kids, but I'm definitely not ready to have my own. Careful is the word for the next 3 months or so!
