Question on fertiliy
My husband and I have been together for about 5 years now and in that time have used condoms, morning after pill or coitus interuptus as contraception methods. now we mostly use coitus interuptus. There have been a very small number of times right after my period that we have had unprotected sex as I thought this was an infertile time. We would like to maybe in a couple of years have a family. I would like to know if the contraception methods we have been using are enough to prevent getting pregnant or if there is a chance that one of us may be infertile. I have just turned 31. The main thing I want to know is if coitus interuptus is enough to prevent pregnancy in some cases.

Coitus interruptus prevents pregnancy in about 80% of cases. The fact that you have not fallen pregnant does not mean that you are infertile, just lucky. Remember that luck is not there on every occasion.
