what kind of b/c you use??

My DH doesn't really care as long as 1) he can't feel it, 2) I don't get pregnant and 3) he doesn't have to wear condoms.

I think my dh would prefer me to get my IUD back. It worked well for us once before, and considering I'm bad at taking pills and the ring gave me side effects, it's about our only option outside of condoms. However, I'm unwilling to go on any form of birth control (I'm taking a stand because I want another child), so either he uses condoms or risks it with pulling out. He usually pulls out. But I know he'd really rather me have the IUD.

ditto... I don't think he has a CLUE what's out there. I keep my pills on a "chip clip" magnet on the refrigerator so I'll REMEMBER to take them... he likes it because he knows exactly when I'm available and when I'm not! (I just have to remember to take them down for company! I sometimes forget!)

DH doesn't care as long as he don't have to wear a condom. But if it was up to him, I wouldn't be on any type of b/c. He wants more babies now!!

DF doesn't care too much, just as long as I don't get pregnant again, and as long as he doesn't have to use a condom.

YES! He takes it very seriously!

He cares that:

1. I'm not on anything that would put my long term health at risk (so all hormonal forms of BC are out).

2. That we aren't doing anything that will potentially harm any of his newly conceived children; nothing that has the potential to be abortifacient (all hormonal BC and the IUD)

3. We're not doing anything which violates our faith


So that leaves NFP, which we're very happy with. Meets all the criteria, 99% effective, no side effects, and he gets to be very involved - family planning is something we both take a part in. It's not all on me, or on him. I make my daily observations, he writes it down on the chart at the end of the day. We decide together if it's time to TTC or if we need to continue avoiding.

My dh does not care. As long as we have one more baby with in the next couple of years he could care less what we use. I opted for the iud only because there is nothing ejected into your system to keep you from getting pregnant. You don't have to take a pill everyday and you only worry about it every 5 yrs. Perfect for us.

Brandon wants me to be on whatever is the safest, and most effective against pregnancy. He'd rather NOT have to use condoms, but we use them anyways. I just stopped the mini pill because it decreased my milk supply and am looking into getting the IUD. That's what he wants me to be on.

He doesnt really care as long as he doesnt feel it and that it doesnt cause me to have serious mood swings.

He leaves it to me, but he likes to be informed and he wants me to be happy and healthy. So he sorta cares, in a laid back way?

My husband doesn't really care just because i think he doesnt' really know that much about all the choices. he told me no matter what i'm on he IS using condoms as well because i got preggo on the pill...which sucks cause i really don't like condoms but at the same time i would like Teegan's little brother/sister to be a bit more planned than he was.

Nope. I have tried all sorts over the years. Pills, the ring, the patch, the shot. Well he hates the shot b/c it almost killed me, but other than that it is up to me.

I told him about the Mirena IUD and he was ALL for it. He didn't really care either, but we both decided that this would be best for us.
