Some women like the pill, others implanton, some the depo etc. All I'm saying is that it can be very reliable when you use it how it's intended. I'm unsure of it's success rate and whether it's up there with all the others at 95% or so, but I love it
    It's very reliable if used correctly - about the same as the pill.

    I understand it ends up being a large number of people (by Australian standards) because our population is 300 million where Australia's is the size of greater LA. But, in the grand scheme of the ratio of Americans, its a minority.

    It just gets my knickers in a twist, constantly having to hear 'well I read this about Americans' or 'in America they do this' (a majority of the time by people who have never even stepped foot in the country). Imagine living in the States and constantly having Americans tell you random (and often false or exaggerated) facts about Australia---your undies would get bunched as well!
    I hope that's not directed at me. My views come first hand from time spent in the land of Uncle Sam.

    Could people please stop using the word f#cktard? It's extremely offensive. Given that the mods are pretty busy, could posters please self edit?

    I'm puzzled by this. No, it's not your "job". But in life we educate ourselves on the things that affect us in order to do the things we like and avoid the things we don't like. It might not be our "job" to learn certain things, but that doesn't mean it won't come back to haunt us.

    It seems that learning the finer workings of contraception would have been in your favour here

In America for the most part your one extreme or the other. A democrat or a religious gun loving republican. There is very little middle ground. Most Americans themselves acknowledge these stereotypes.

    And I think virginity pledged are knobby. I think parents pushing kids into them is harmful. Can't be bothered explaining why.
    As an American who has lived here for 7 years I can honestly say Australia and America are not that different, they are incredibly similar.



    Don't get me wrong, I completely acknowledge we have some far right people that make me cringe but a majority are moderate (if they weren't Obama would not have been reelected).

    The far right is just very vocal, and Australian media loves it. But very few of them hold political offices.

    Ok I agree with you, thanks for clarifying. Sounds like either you have a super uterus or your hubby has super sperm!

    Harden up. I'm describing a woman who beat her kid. I think fu@tard is pretty tame.
