    •  I said that to be funny, but it's really what I (3+ / 0-)

      used. Birth control pills and I didn't like one another. I had one child and one abortion while having a fairly active sex life. But I could feel when I ovulated. I know that sounds weird, but I really could. The bummer is that the hormones create increased desire during ovulation. So, other forms of contraception are probably better than my Russian roulette plan.

        ... from my ex-in-laws.  (Note emphasis on "ex.")

        Since like you I knew when I was ovulating, I said to them, "In other words, when one is most desperate to, uh, do it, one doesn't?"

        "Yes, exactly!" they beamed.

        Well, more than thirty years later (almost all of them with my replacement husband), I am happy to say that I turned those lessons on their little spermatozooa-shaped heads: When Mr. B and I wanted a baby, or another baby, I knew EXACTLY when to leave the diaphragm in the drawer.

        BOOM.  BOOM.  BOOM.

        Cheers.
