I haven't had sex in so long I'm wondering if it's still done the same way...LOL But we'll be using condoms until DH can get a snip, which will hopefully be sometime this year. He had an appointment all set up and was getting things done for it like blood work, but then the doctor didn't want to do it since he's not 30 yet and Liz wasn't born. They said they wanted to wait until the baby was 4-5 months old 'just in case'.

Where's the abstinence option? I had a baby in March and still don't feel ready to DTD (I'm too tired all the time anyways). But I have a prescription for birth control pill and I'll probably start taking them soon.

I voted twice, hope that's okay. We use a condom when I'm ovulating and nothing when I'm not. I was on the pill, but my perscription ran out since we moved here, and I don't have health insurance anymore. But we're working on that. I really don't like the scared feeling of never knowing when you're pregnant, but birth control is so expensive! My husband will be getting a vastectomy within the year, we hope.

ETA, my husband gets downright obstinate if we go more than two nights without intercourse, lol. I can remember going a week without sex right before my daughter was born, but when we're together, no more than three nights. EVER.
