    i did use both, then just the pill as ive been with my b/f six years. but i had to come of the pill recently due to high blood pressure so im back to using comdoms.
    Only thing with them is they can go wrong! id say use both.

    Condom, always - especially if its going to be a short term thing.

    I have a friend whos baby it 1 this december, she was on the pill, and using a condom, your never 100% but a barrier method has a much higher success rate.

    If your with a long term then consider the pill, but as you not with a BF then stick to condoms.

    BEtter protection against STI's such as HIV & Aids, Herpes, Syphillis etc.

    Also always carry one with you - dont rely on the blokes, white a lot of us are responsible, and carry thate are many bastards out there who dont.

    my motto - Never leave home without one!!

    For more info on contraception take a look at http://www.thesite.org/sex/pregnancy/contraception_overview.html

    yeah some guys are right twats, however, from my experience thats the guys who girls go for. but I would say just keep a close eye on what you use, u may get caught up in the moment and BANG! your in trouble. be safe, not... now whats that word.... ah yes stupid!

    well i have been using just a condom but have decided to use both after having to many worries bout getting pregnant. i want to just use the pill but i am unsure.

    Blumin Eck - ALWAYS ALWAYS a condom - even with being on the pill or using any other form of contraception - the only time not to use them is if you've been with your partner for ages and both taken HIV tests and had a visit to the GUM clinic to make sure you got no STI's too!!!

    Don't sacrifice your health! He/She is just not worth it honest!

    I'm on the pill and when i'm in a long term relationship i just use that, but if i have a one-night thing, i ALWAYS use a condom.

    I was on the pill and used a condom (1 nite stand). The condom came off (didn't notice till we had finished and I got pregnant. Turns out the medication I was on (for epilepsy) reduced the contraceptive side of the pill. Talk about bad luck. Use both and get the right dose for you. I chose to have an abortion, which was the right thing for me, but I was scared to have sex for over a year. Hardest decision of my life.

    Sorry to depress every1 there!! PLEASE be careful tho, sex is fantastic when its safe. I would have had 2 year old twins be now (double bad luck unless you love babies, which I don't)- I can imagine sex being a bit more difficult if I had gone through with the pregnancy!! I also wouldn't have met my man (who I now live with)if I would have bogged down with nappies and baby food.

    I think you should go on the pill X-rated, it's much better than using condoms in a long term relationship:
    1.Doesn't kill the moment
    2.Less likely to get pregnant (condom may slip off or burst)
    3.Sex without rubber feels so much better
