In brief: Don't have sex
I believe that if you are going to have sex, you must assume that she may get pregnant.
1 in 200 women who use the pill get pregnant per year even using the pill appropriately, 4 per 200 with an iud, 20 per 200 with condoms, even tubal ligations and vasectomies can fail. Half of all pregnancies in this country are "unplanned". They have kept me busy delivering babies for a long time.
