Pregnancy, wanting a baby, having a baby

 
Pregnancy, wanting a baby, having a baby

If you're thinking about having a baby in the next year or so, a slightly mistimed pregnancy might not be a catastrophe. If this is the case, you could just use condoms - they're less effective than other types of contraception if you're only using condoms, but they're easy to use and easy to get hold of. You don't have to bother getting a prescription and you don't need to go to the doctor to get an implant or coil removed when you do decide to have a baby (this can sometimes spoil the spontaneity of baby-making!).

You can come off the Pill whenever you want to, of course (it's better to finish your pack, but you don't have to). Most women on the Pill still go to their doctor before they stop taking the Pill, and this can make the decision to have a baby less of a private affair between the two of you - but it does give you the chance to have a check-up to make sure your health is OK and you're in tip-top condition to have a baby (you're up to date with your vaccinations, etc).
