I know this was a topic before but my OB asked me about it at my last appointment and I'm trying to think of what I want to do...

I don't want anymore kids till LO is out of diapers!
I don't want the pill or the Depo shot ( Depo made me sick the pill I would forget)
I know some are doing the natural way I don't think that would work for me


So, her and I talked about the ones that go inside your vagina like Mirania... Which sounds ok but I always see those commercials about how certain ones are bad and cause problems

There is also the one that goes into the arm

And she said there is a new one they are learning about

I was thinking a vaginal one or the arm one!

We are going to use condoms until we are 100% sure and then DH will get the surgery. I have friends who have gotten the non-hormone IUD and liked it.

I remember after my daughter was born a zillion people asked me about birth control. It seemed like every single doctor or nurse asked us about it, so much that we started to get a complex.

I had the mirena iud for a year after I had Isaac. I really liked the iud and enjoyed not having to remember a pill every day. I eventually had to have it removed because my body doesn't like birthcontrol (specifically hormonal bc). I spent the past 4 years bleeding and or spotting almost constantly, it's disgusting and annoying. This isn't a normal symptom of the iud, just my bodies reaction to it. Six months in the doctor put me on bc pills, so I had both the iud and the pill and STILL had constant bleeding and spotting. So finally he decided he wasn't happy and that my body wasn't liking the iud and he removed it.

I have literally been on almost all forms of birth control and always have the spotting. As soon as I am off, the spotting goes away. So this time hubby is "supposed" to get a vasectomy. I keep offering to get a tubal since I will already be there at the hospital, but he doesn't want me to have to be the one. I haven't decided what to do until he gets the vasectomy. I figured he would do it while I am pregnant, but he wanted to wait and make sure we have a healthy baby before doing it.

There is another iud (not sure of the name) that is copper and doesn't have any hormones in it. It may be something you would like, especially if you know you don't want another until baby is out of diapers.

I am not sure what I'm doing yet either. Pills is what got me in this situation so that's a no. I had problems the entire time with my mirena iud and had to have it removed bc it had turned diagonal inside of me. I spotted everyday with it also.

Ill get the Mirena again. I've had 2. Never have I had an issue and I LOVE not ever getting my period for the whole time I have it. I have had a very positive experience on it and have gotten pregnant immediately after having it removed (intentionally) twice so Mirena again it is

NFP. I don't want anything hormonal. Once we decide for sure that we're done, DH will get a vasectomy.

We are going to do condoms until we are sure we are done as well and then DH will get a vasectomy. They've worked fine for us (pregnant second try with first DS and first try this time around so we seem pretty fertile). We buy them at BJs so they are cheaper ha ha.

Either the Morena or Paraguard IUD. I suck at remembering pills and Doofus sucks at remembering condoms(his fault we are having #2 so soon). We want at least 2 more kids so vasectomy isn't an option yet.

I would love to do FAM but i think it would be better to wait til I'm not constantly exhausted and can actually do all the steps

I'm not much help here as I had a tubal during my c section only since I know we are done and was already there and it ended up costing less than DH going in. Altho part of me wished he had to do something....

No clue. Hubby keeps asking if I have to have a c-section, if I can just go somewhere else since they'll be in there anyhow. The hospital I deliver at is Catholic so tubals are not an option. I told him I've gone through this 5 times, and if he wants something done, he can do something about it. I could see us having "just one more", but we shall see.....

I plan on taking the pill again! It's worked great for us for 7 years, and I got pregnant right away after coming off of them!

I don't want to do the pill. It makes me sick. Plus, I was on the pill when we got pregnant this time around. I will prolly get a prescription for the pill just in case but condoms for now until my Dh decides to buck up and get the vasectomy. I don't want to do a tubal.

Condoms. I'm not a huge fan, but they work; only 1 out of 5 babies was a surprise while using them. I can't use hormonal birth control and I don't want an IUD.

I'm not sure yet. I don't want an IUD, but I suck at remembering to take pills, and I won't do the depo shot. I wanted to do NFP but my cycle is soooo irregular because of the PCOS I don't know how that will work. I will probably end up on the pill though. I will have to discuss it with doc soon I guess.

You girls are not going to believe what my mom said to me about this: We were talking about us having one more after this baby and if we decide not to, DH agreed he will get a vasectomy. Well my mom told me she didn't think that was a good idea because DH is so young (he's almost 8 years younger then me:27). She said I should do the surgery since I am older and won't be having more kids but you never know what the future will bring and he may want more children in the future...*** mom??? Really?? That's what I get for even discussing this with my mom....
So the bottom line, we have no clue what we will do for birth control until we decide if we are done or not.....I am not doing hormones and DH hates condoms. So either NFP which I want to do or no sex..... I think I might win!!
