    as you're feeling broody anyway, you might have a bit of an irrational slip, not be as careful as you should and fall pregnant at a time that's not great for either of you.

    Thanks for the imput.

    I would like to make it clear that I would never have unprotected sex with my partner or be purposefully uncareful in any way. I would not want to be deceptive or unfair to my partner, because his 100% trust is a priority for me.

    I haven't had a chance to speak to him yet because he works at the weekends, but I will sit him down and explain to him that hormonal contraception isn't working for me anymore. I will finish my pack of pills and then use condoms before making a decsion together.

    I've done some research into the diaphram and the coil. I don't think the diaphram is something I would feel comfortable with, because I would worry whether I had inserted it correctly. The copper coil looks like a good option though, so I'd like to discuss it with my partner.

    Due to my medical stuff I've always had to use condoms. I've used them for forever and only once had a problem. I guess like everything you use what suits you best.

    I disagree on them not being reliable enough, 9 years never once have i had any "accidents" broody or not.

    Thanks for the reasurance about using condoms.

    I have just filed registration documents with my local doctors, so I will have to wait a few weeks for an appointment anyway, so once I finish my pack of pills I'll only being relying on condoms for a while.
    If my partner feels comfortable with just using condoms then I may give other forms of contraception a miss for a while x
