Thanks for all the help! I have been looking into the charting thing. How do you protect yourself on the days when you know you are ovulating? Just abstain or a barrier method? Also, I currently still have the shot 'in me'. It will probably last another 2 weeks. It will probably take a few months for my cycle to get back to normal so until then what should I use? Any experience with spermicide sponges or other barrier methods? I am allergic to latex and the lamb skin condoms are a no go as well.
