    I don't have one.  THe one we use works but makes the experience less fun

    I don't like BC. I've only tried hormonal types, and I believe 100% that hormones in the pills/ring/patch are why I am still having bleeding issues off and on at almost 7mo pp. Letting nature take it's course, and tracking my cycles/nfp will be what we use from now on.

    Pregnant.... so none right now. :) I'm looking at the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility. Definitely not going with hormonal BC this time around. I'm a little worried about getting a surprise... but we'll work this natural stuff out!

    FAM(fertility awareness method) I am going to go back to this once I am done breastfeeding but for now we use condoms.

    For now, ecological breastfeeding.  Once AF returns (and since he's breastfeeding even better than his sister, still hasn't started foods at 6 months, and AF returned with her around 14 months, I'm hoping to make 18-20 months), I'll be charting CM/CP, and we'll be abstaining at the appropriate times.  We've used hormonal bc (hated it and will NEVER do it again, even if I didn't have a clotting condition now), condoms, and diaphragm.  I guess of those 3, I'd say my favorite was diaphragm for ease of use, comfort, "green" factor (not throwing away a latex every time), and lack of artificial hormones.  Also, hubby's new job is kind of bc--he's working on the riverboats, 28 days away at a time and only home 14.

    I like the Nuvaring when I used it. However, since I'm still trying to bf as much as possible I'm not on anything right now.

    This ^  and if I needed something more I'd choose the cooper IUD. I don't do hormones.
