I haven't even thought of BC after baby yet. With all this pelvic pressure, it's hard to imagine wanting to DTD and even chance getting pregnant again so soon!

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 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.

Unsure. I'm awful with remembering the pills and I don't want DF to get his V until we are done for sure. He's all for getting it in June, but I think we'll have to wait and see Maybe condoms.

Prob NFP or V for DH. However with the way we've been getting along lately, we prob won't ever have to worry about it cause we'll never DTD again! Abstinence!!

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.

I refuse to put hormones into my body. No surgery either. Cant do it. Dont want husband to have a v because it greatly increases a man's likelihood of getting prostate cancer....no thanks

Thank you for my siggy Jaidynsmum!
