Experience

Three years ago I switched from hormonal contraception to tracking my cycles and using a combination of fertility awareness and condoms for contraception. I only have the kinds of sex with which pregnancy is a possibility during infertile times, and use condoms after my period until I start seeing fertile mucous also. During my fertile window (from first fertile mucous to three days after ovulation) I only have the kinds of sex where pregnancy is not a risk (oral, manual/digital etc). This is an extremely effective method thus far with no side effects and increased self-awareness and body-literacy.
