I think it's harder to get pregnant than to prevent it. In sex ed they make it sound like if you have sex just once you can get pregnant. And while that's true, I find it very unlikely. Too many things have to fall in place for you to get pregnant. There's such a small window of opportunity. Once you ovulate, the egg's only good for like 12 hours. Unless you have sex that day, or had sex a day or two before, you probably won't get pregnant. My husband and I tried for 2 months with no luck. I charted my cycle and everything. Apparently I was wrong. The third month I used an ovulation predictor and we had sex on the day it said I was ovulating and lo and behold, 13 days later, there was a positive pregnancy test! So what do you think, is it harder to get pregnant or prevent it?
