It means (majority of the time) I can come home and get my comfy clothes on and pass out on the bed with snacks, drinks and more tv binging than I can stick a shake at!!
Unfortunately most of the time it involves me falling asleep before 10pm with some snack in my hand the other half in my mouth and my cats laying on top of me like I've died..... Then I'll wake up Saturday at 4:23am spastic thinking I'm late for work..... woe is me...
Emergency Contraception (EC) can stop a pregnancy before it starts. (That means the EC pills are not the same as the abortion pill.) There are four types of EC to choose from and they all work up to 5 days (or 120 hours) after unprotected sex. But use it sooner rather than later to reduce the possibility of getting pregnant.
EC provides the possibility of prevention after the fact. There are more effective methods, but it's the quickest and easiest "after the fact" option out there.
Sterilization is a procedure that closes or blocks your fallopian tubes so you can't get pregnant. (Your tubes are where eggs and sperm meet. If they can't meet, they can't hook up.) Guys also have a sterilization option--a vasectomy blocks the tubes that carry a man's sperm. Talk to a health care provider to learn more and be sure to ask about state and federal requirements, like age restrictions and waiting periods.
A permanent solution for those who are sure they don't want a future pregnancy.
"Not right now" is our way of saying "no vaginal sex." It's a great method as far as effectiveness is concerned--if you use it 100% of the time, you're guaranteed to not get pregnant. And if you're avoiding sexual activity altogether, you'll be safe from STIs too. But it does involve a whole lot of self-control.
If you don't have sex, you won't get pregnant. But you'll need willpower.

Withdrawal is the oldest form of birth control on the planet. There's not much to explain, really. The guy pulls out before he ejaculates. End of story. Some people call withdrawal the "pull out method." Or you may hear people call it "coitus interruptus." The key thing to remember is this: You've got to do it right--every single time--for withdrawal to be effective. And how many guys do you know with that kind of total control?
The sponge is a round piece of white plastic foam with a little dimple on one side and a nylon loop across the top that looks like shoelace material. It's pretty small--just two inches across--and you insert it way up in your vagina before you have sex. The sponge works in two ways: It blocks your cervix to keep sperm from getting into your uterus, and it continuously releases spermicide. Think of it like a bouncer at the nightclub door to your uterus.
No hormones, no prescription, and can be inserted up to 24 hours before sex.
A cervical cap is a silicone cup you insert in your vagina to cover your cervix and keep sperm out of your uterus. The "cap" part of the name is pretty dead on--the thing looks like a little rubber sailor's hat, maybe an inch and a half wide and one inch high. There's only one brand of cervical cap available in the U.S. today, and it's jauntily named the FemCap. One super important thing to remember: You need to use a cervical cap with spermicide for it to be most effective.

The implant (Nexplanon is the brand name; previously Implanon) is a teeny-tiny rod that's inserted under the skin of your upper arm. It's so small, in fact, most people can't see it once it's inserted--which means it can be your little secret, if you're so inclined. The implant releases hormones that keep your ovaries from releasing eggs and thicken your cervical mucus, which helps to block sperm from getting to the egg in the first place. Plus, it prevents pregnancy for three years. Not too shabby.
The shot is just what it sounds like--a shot that keeps you from getting pregnant. Once you get it, your birth control is covered for three full months--there's nothing else you have to do. Some people call the shot "Depo," short for Depo-Provera. (Pronounced like Johnny Depp-oh.) The shot contains progestin, a hormone that prevents your ovaries from releasing eggs. It also thickens your cervical mucus, which helps block sperm from getting to the egg in the first place. Some women say they don't want the shot because they're afraid of needles. But what's a little prick compared to a pregnancy?
A diaphragm is a shallow, dome-shaped cup made of latex or silicone. (Honestly, it looks like Meg Griffin's hat on The Family Guy. Except it's off-white and only a few inches in diameter.) You insert the diaphragm into your vagina. Then it covers your cervix and keeps sperm out of your uterus. One super important thing to remember: For a diaphragm to work effectively, you need to use it with spermicide.
The ring (brand name: NuvaRing) is a small, bendable ring that you insert into your vagina. (It kind of looks like one of those jelly bracelets from the 80s, but it feels a tiny bit stiffer.) You leave it in place for three weeks at a time, then take it out for the fourth week. The ring works by giving off hormones that prevent your ovaries from releasing eggs. The hormones also thicken your cervical mucus, which helps to block sperm from getting to the egg in the first place.
The patch is a thin, beige piece of plastic that looks like a square Band-Aid. It's a little less than two inches across, and comes in one--and only one--color. (Beige.) You stick the patch on your skin and it gives off hormones that prevent your ovaries from releasing eggs. The hormones also thicken your cervical mucus, which helps to block sperm from getting to the egg in the first place. The brand name Ortho Evra isn't being produced anymore so if you use the patch, ask for the generic, Xulane.
Fertility awareness-based methods--or natural family planning--are all about tracking your menstrual cycle to determine the days that you can get pregnant. The tricky part is actually knowing when those days are. To do that, you'll need to pay very close attention to your body and its patterns. Here we list all the different ways you can monitor your day-to-day fertility.
Fertility awareness-based methods are inexpensive, hormone-free, and free of side effects.... http://glw.io/Pp0BH

A female condom is a pouch you insert into your vagina. It's not the prettiest thing in the world (it looks a bit like a floppy, clear elephant trunk) but it is a method that gives you lots of control. Female condoms work the same way that male condoms do, except that you wear one on the inside instead of sticking it on a penis. They keep the guy's sperm inside the condom and out of your vagina.
Rubber. Jimmy-hat. Love sock. Wrapper. However you say it, male condoms are one of the most popular forms of buyirth control out there. They slip over a guy's penis to prevent pregnancy and lower the risk of STIs by keeping the guy's sperm inside the condom and out of your vagina.
They protect against STIs, don't require a prescription, and are inexpensive. Win! They also need to be used every time in order to be effective.

The IUD is a little, t-shaped piece of plastic that gets put in your uterus to mess with the way sperm can move and prevent them from fertilizing an egg. Sounds odd, but it works like a charm. IUDs offer years of protection--between three and twelve, depending on the type you get. And if you want to get pregnant, you can have the IUD removed at any time. In the U.S. there are four IUDs: Mirena and ParaGard, which are already widely available, and newer options Skyla and Liletta.... http://glw.io/5vQLW
"The Pill" is a pill. (How's that for stating the obvious?) Some people call it "oral contraception." You take it once a day, at the same time every day. There are lots of different kinds of pills on the market, and new ones come out all the time. Some work by releasing hormones that keep your ovaries from releasing eggs. The hormones also thicken your cervical mucus, which helps to block sperm from getting to the egg in the first place.

This is Tonje
The now 28 or so year old woman saves used condoms and hangs them on the wall. With pictures too!!! But for her it's a fetish. I don't knock fetishes but my goodness. A used condom??
Honestly I can't stand that latex smell. It's horrid.
But at least she's a lover of condoms. So that makes me happy to celebrate her awesomeness this week!
Now if you want to make some extra cash, she will pay you for used condoms, too! More info here
