Ortho Tri-Cyclen
May 2, 2005
ok... I cannot really seem to get my question answered. I am on Ortho Tri-Cyclen (not lo or just Ortho Cyclen) and I have been on it for 5 months (although I have been on birth control for 4 years). I take it VERY faithfully...down to the minute. My boyfriend and I go on spurts of using condoms, not using condoms but pulling out, using condoms, not using condoms and him finishing inside me. If it's been 5 months without any pregnancy ( we have sex on average about 5 or 6 times a week :D a lot of the times unprotected ), I have no spotting during my active pills or cramps, is it ok to assume it's working? My doctor told me that it was VERY ok to have unprotected sex while on Ortho Tri-Cyclen if you take your pill everyday around the same time. I have also been told by his mother the exact same thing. I am still just kind of worried about it. I am allergic to latex, so the aftermath of using condoms isn't very pretty. And i know y'all will say use polyeurithane condoms, but if you read the package it states that they don't even know if they are effective against pregnancy. So my question i guess, is just give me y'alls opinions on if you had success having unprotected sex while on ANY birth control. I know the patch and ortho tri-cyclen lo have bad reps. (which is why my doctor took me off of those).

Thanks Alot!
