Subject best: Discussed with your doctor about bcp risk versus iud risk. Rhythm and ovulation thermometer are less reliable. Then there is the obvious solution for your partner to have vasectomy. Regular condom use is quite effective. Last, tubal ligation if you no longer want to bear children. Familial brca is not absolute contraindication to oral bcp.
