But all of the above assumes easy access to said contraceptive options...THAT is the catch!

More is not necessarily better.
Actually being on the pill has a tendency to make you more regular, which would make guessing when you are going to ovulate a lot easier. And the pill (OR IUD OR depo) + condoms is definitely not going to cancel each other out.

No a woman can't be on 2 forms of hormonal birth control, but a woman on bc + man using a condom, definitely makes an accident LESS likely to happen.

And charting ovulation is also not necessarily just about timing and needing to be regular. You can temp also. May be a pain in the butt, but a lot less of a pain than waking up every 2-3 hours a night to feed an infant. And WAYYYY cheaper.

Exactly!

Again, charting is completely unreliable. So, no, that didn't help your chances at all. Condom and birth control failure rates are still there, too. You didn't get rid of them by adding more failure rates on top. Birth control is only handed out to non-smoking women under 30 who fit a certain weight and blood pressure criteria. Most aren't aware of what medications or herbal supplements will render their birth control useless.Not to mention not all women have the type of schedule that does well with consistency, which is what birth control requires. Birth control also increases the possibility of vaginal dryness. Which leads to lube. Which leads to the possibility of "not knowing" and getting one that breaks the condom down.

It's nice to say, oh, you can do this, and that, and this. Women HAVE tried this, and that, and this. Accidents still happen, regardless. And not all women believe in Plan B or early abortion. You can decrease your chances(some), you can't be perfect. And it starts with the doctors office. They need to GIVE information, not just a, "Oh, here's a pill pack". They don't tell you, "Don't take with antibiotics", they don't say, "Oh, be sure to check expiration dates". THAT is the biggest reason why birth control fails. Uneducated women who wouldn't know better regardless.

(Oh, and side note, all that gets worse with Romney in office, as he doesn't believe in sex education, just abstinence only. Yay for more uneducated people have uneducated sex!).

Charting is free, condoms are cheap at any CVS or gas station. Pretty sure they're easy to get. Hormonal birth control can be trickier to come by, but I'm guessing that the majority of the "oops" babies aren't from people diligently trying to prevent them.

Why is the government funding planned parenthood, if not to give easy access to birth control?

Not always. Yaz, for example, juggled me between 2 week cycles and 6 week cycles.

Birth control pills are typically estrogen. IUD AND Deop is progesterone. You absolutely CAN NOT take both and still be covered. It does NOT work that way. Taking both is a "might as well take sugar pills" method. It is either one, or the other. Estrogen or progesterone. Bigger problem at hand?

Not all women respond the same way to both, and that can affect it's efficiency QUITE a bit.

Ugh, you must have missed where the Republicans are cutting funds for Planned Parenthood and attempting to outlaw it.

I'm pretty sure Planned Parenthood gives bags of condoms away for free as well.

Where there's a will there's a way!
