Can anyone tell me whether it is difficult to start charting again after baby? I'd think it would be hard to get accurate results when you're BFing, hormones are all over the place, and you're not sleeping for that 3 hour stretch needed before temping?
I guess we'll just use condoms initially. I really don't want to introduce artificial hormones when my body is still trying to get itself sorted out.
I'm wondering the same thing. I think it will take at least a few months before charting will be accurate. I will probably try to start charting after my first period. I am one that still gets normal periods even when I am exclusively breast feeding. Lucky me. Not!
I wonder if a doc would even give him a V at 23? Supposedly my sister's husband asked about it and the doc said they didn't want to give him one in his late 30's because that was young. I kind of think my sister's husband is full of crap though so he could have been lying because he didn't want to go through with it haha
I dated a guy that had one done very young. Its actually the reason we didnt stay together. He said he would have it reversed but... if you make that decision I dont want to be the person that pushed a child on someone.
It makes me a teeny bit sad but hubs is getting a vasectomy. We are 34 and 35 and will have 5 kids. I have prayed about it and thought about it a lot. I feel like for me, 5 will put me at my max as far as patience and the proper amount of attention for everyone. That,combined with my limited mobility due to neuropathy, almost made it a no-brained. I know that isn't the case for everyone, but I think it is for us.

I had mirena right after my son was born and took it out when he was about 18 months. I THOUGHT I liked it just fine, but once it was out I realized I had pretty much zero libido while I had it so now I'm not so sure. Of course it could have been the breastfeeding also, but as soon as that thing was gone I felt like my old pre-baby self again so I blame mirena.
So I'm really conflicted--I might try the copper kind, or just get mirena again and deal with it for a year or so until I'm ready for DH to get the V. I'm sad about having only 2 kids, but really that's what's right for our family. I'm almost 34 and he is 40 so I think we're done.
