POLL: do you use the rhythm method?

adam levine maroon 5

When Adam Levine of Maroon 5 told OK magazine that he and his (Victoria Secret) girlfriend use the rhythm method as their contraception of choice I had to stifle a chortle.

The Catholic Church would be proud.  This the reason women remained barefoot and constantly pregnant, until the rise of feminism in the sixties forced the almost universal move to contraception methods that actually did what they were supposed to. That is:  work.

Pulling out before the magic moment?  Maybe Adam Levine has a trick mickey but for the rest of the mortal population is this a goer?

    we use this method! I’m glad to see we’re not the only ones in the world. Ok, it’s not 100% perfect but what method is and it works for us

    I prefer the more reliable methods like douching with pepsi max, doing it standing up and doing it with the lights on.

    Hilarious! Reminds me of our sex ed classes in school when the only method of contraception mentioned involved thermometers and colouring in charts in different colours. The fact that the teacher had 8 kids should have indicated the effectiveness of this plan!

    Ah the Days of Yore. The good old Rhythm method. “I’ve got Rhythm, I’ve got rhythm, I’ve got 12 kids, who could ask for anything more’ do do do doo… As my mother used to say “don’t forget your aspirin” – “Wha?”, the best contraceptive method = “A plain old aspirin, put it between your knees and hold tight”, a no brainer!!!! Abstinance at certain times of the month, makes a bit of old sense in a lot of ways, but not when you’re ovulating, it’s then you want a bit of a ride. No, the rhythm method is cruel. Goes against Nature.

  • Sure wasn’t there some hubub recently that Lily Aldridge and some other Victoria’s Secret model walked the runway of the VS show while carrying early pregnancies? Must be the VS contraceptive method of choice so.

    Personally no cos I don’t feel ready to be a mother just yet. But each to their own. Some people find it amoral to use contraception for religious/personal beliefs so it’s not my place to judge

  • boredmum says:

    oh Adam Levine looks HOOOOOOTT, yum yum yum,

    Also, major NO for the rythem method, i got pregnant using normal “reliable” contraception, so i’d probably end up pregnant with quads if i used this method,

  • Nicola says:

    Honest to God, I thought the rhythm method related to what kind of rhythm you ride to. It’s shameful how recently I learnt the truth.

    I know a few people who use it, one who has all the serious charts and bumf. I stopped listening when she said the word ‘mucus’.

  • Ilona says:

    What do you call people who use The Rhythm Method?

  • RiRi says:

    Ya we use this method sometimes, not all the times though. I am not on the pill, never want to never will be, condoms all the way. We don’t have sex 7 days a week, so why put some pill in your body everyday of the year. But that’s just me, I am not against the pill or anything.
