Do you ever miss a use/dose of your chosen birth control?

Bignuf Bignuf
If you use any contraceptive, how often do you fail to use it? Be it "forgetting" to take your pill, or just not using a condum "this time", or "it will be okay, since I forgot to get a tube of contraceptive gel"......how often do you rely on luck to not get pregnant?

I have a "cannot forget" technique. ( IUD, implant)

I use rhythum, basil body temp or other "natural" methods.
I use birth control meds or techniques but never, ever risk sex without them.
6
I "risk it" once in a great while.
I freqeuently take a chance without full contraception in place.
I forget to use it more then I remember!
No sex ( or none with sperm provider) so no worries.
5
I'm a guy. Not getting pregnant.
No worries. My baby making gear is gone or out of commission.

Don't have to worry about it, had my tubes tied almost 15 years ago. Though I am currently on Birth Control Pills as well for my Hormone related headaches and have missed a day here and there.

My boyfriend and I use condoms and never go without them. If we run out and forget to buy more (that's only happened once in over a year), we don't have sex until we get some.

I can't say I wouldn't risk it because I've said that before, and then in the moment....brain dead. However, I set an alarm to take my birth control. I haven't missed a dose since I started it *knock on wood*.

I have an Implant, so no forgetting for me. The big reason I went to that was because I forgot pills all the time when I was using them. The patch wasn't visually nice and neither my husband or I liked the ring.

I use the pill. There are occasions where I will miss a pill, but as my partner is in the UK and I am in the US, it's rarely a problem. I take the pill more as means of controlling my period.

I have the nexplanon/inplanon implant in my arm so I do not have to worry.

Never missed a pill and I've been on them for about 2.5 years. My boyfriend and I use condoms too. No babies here!

I use the Depo shot. I get one every 12 weeks, and I don't even have to think about my birth control in the mean time.

I never miss a day completely-- least it's been a long time since then. Sometimes I'll be late by an hour or two, but from what I told, that is not a bad thing and doesn't affect anything.

If I got pregnant, it would be a double miracle and we would be rich!!! Hubby is fixed and I had a hysterectomy 20 years ago!!

It's a strange combination of the fact I have PCOS and am incredibly unlikely to even menstruate as well as paranoia that I will be "on" and get pregnant that would drive me to also be on the pill AND use condoms whenever I'm sexually active.

Since I take a lot of pills every morning it would be hard for me to forget to take any single one of them though, so forgetting really doesn't happen in my case.
