I am engaged and soon to be married. My fiance and I have not had sex in about 5 months, reason being is my "phobia" of becoming pregnant. When we would have sex, he would wear a condom, pull out, and I am on the pill. Even after all of these precautions, however, I would still be paranoid. I literally bought a HPT every month. We engage in other sexual activities (Oral, Fingering) but I am STILL paranoid of becoming pregnant. I am always very nervous that when he finf=gers me that some sperm may get into contact to my vagina by his hands or giving him a hand job and touching myself. I guess my major question is, is this a possible way to become pregnant? And also, I am on the pill but worry when it comes to temperature storage or medications or vomitting, is there a more effective method? i was thinking of an IUD but have heard its less effective if you have not had kids. Sorry for the long post but I really need help!

I am going to link you to a bunch of articles that should answer your questions. Why don't you come on back if you have any further questions after reading?

I just finished reading the article "Birth Control Bingo" and I'm very interested in the copper-T IUD, however, i didnt see anything regarding whether it isnt very effective for women who have not had kids? Do you know if this is the case?

The reason why some doctors are reluctant to prescribe the IUD for women who have not been pregnant has nothing to do with effectiveness. It is a very effective method of birth control, regardless of whether you've been pregnant.

However, the insertion process can be slightly more painful for someone who has never been pregnant, and the risk that the body will expel the IUD is a little higher.

So, if you are interested in getting an IUD, you'll want to make an appointment with your gynecologist to talk about that.
