No idea what my parents used, heh. They were done at 3 and then had another so whatever they were using didn't work. My parents lived like Hippies, so I'm guessing then didn't use artificial birth control.
My MIL mostly just used breastfeeding as birth control.
Nope. My dad got the V after my younger brother was born.
My parents divorced when I was about 7. My mom remarried a year later... she and my step-dad TTC for years until my baby brother was born when I was 14. I have no idea what they used after my brother was born, but I'm almost certain my mom wasn't on anything hormonal (she says the pill gave her cervical cancer years and years before then, so I'm pretty sure she was against using anything hormonal). They *PROBABLY* used the POM. My mom accidentally got pregnant the following year and had my baby sister when I was 16. After she was born, my step-dad got the V.
My dad got a reversal after he remarried my step-mom (when I was 15, they wanted kids together). They've been TTC ever since (I'm 25 now... so for about 10 years). My dad says the reversal didn't work so well. Plus, my step-mom has fertility problems.
Nope. I know my Mom used the pill and diaphragm and then after my sister was born (their 4th) my Dad got a vasectomy. I don't think any one in my family uses it except maybe my brother and sil--never asked them though.
