Is birth control pills, condoms, and a vasectomy a good combo of contraceptives to prevent pregnancy?

Contraception . Yes. All 3 of those together are very protective against pregnancy. Generally speaking, pregnancy would not be an issue after a male partner has obtained a vasectomy. This procedure would need reversal in order for pregnancy to occur. When used correctly birth control alone is 99.9% effective. Condoms are about 98% effective when used correctly. Read more...

What are the chances of my birth control pills and my partner's vasectomy failing at the same time to result in pregnancy?

About 0. The chances of two excellent contraceptive methods failing at the same time are about zero, mathematically rounded off, of course. No worries.

What are the chances of pregnancy occurring after successful vasectomy and while on birth control pills?

You should be ok. If you received a dose of Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) on July 4th, you should be covered contraceptively until October 3rd. So right now, you are probably safe (as safe as you usually are on Depo). But all methods do have a failure rate, so if you don't get a period at the end of this birth control pill pack, then you should take a pregnancy test. Read more...

I've had birth control pills almost 3 months, always use condom for back up. Past few days I've had lots of clear, sweet discharge. Sign of pregnancy?

Probably not . Check a home pregnancy test. In minutes you will have your answer. Vaginal discharge requires an examination to determine the cause and treatment. Bacterial vaginosis is the most common cause and often has a vaginal odor. Vaginal itching can be a sign of a yeast infection.

Chance of pregnancy when using both male condoms and birth control pills correctly?

Highly unlikely. Each form of protection gives a greater than 90% chance of protecting against pregnancy. Using them effectively together almost negates the chances of becoming pregnant. I would say to less than 2%. Read more...
