What type if any of birth control do you plan on using once your baby is born.

DH and I have been having a disagreement on birth control after this baby is born. he wants me to either get my tubes tied or go back on the birth control pill which I don't want to do either. the birth control pill doesn't always work since I was on birth control when we got pregnant with Jackson and I just don't want to get my tubes tied. I want DH to get a vasectomy but he just doesn't want to. he's afraid it will hurt and I'm like well I seriously doubt it will hurt as bad as giving birth to a baby boy. I'm going to get some referrals from my OB and just see if I can get Dh to go and talk to a dr about doing it. so we are not sure what type of birth control we will be using. I guess if DH continues to refuse then we will just use condoms forever..lol. DH hates them so that may be what pushes him to get it done.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

I'm not sure yet. We aren't doing anything permanent because we want 1-2 more kids. I can't do hormonal birth control and IUD's scare me. We were just pulling out and that worked for us but I really don't want to do that and risk getting pregnant to quickly. I want some more time for my body recover before trying for #3. Thinking maybe condoms but we really aren't sure yet. Once we are done having babies dh will get a vasectomy, he volunteered because he doesn't want me to have surgery to get my tubes tied.

I've already talked to DH about getting a vasectomy. Before we even got pregnant I told him that when we were done having kids I'd like him to get one. He was very resistant at first, but that's because he didn't really understand the procedure or what sex would be like afterward. So I showed him some online info so now he understands.

Until then I may go on the pill again, as well as use condoms. I've never had an issue with the pill or pregnancy scares or anything, but we only want 2 kids and I would be upset if we accidentally got pregnant again. We both hate condoms, but we're willing to use them so we don't have an 'oops'. I don't want to rely only on condoms though, because I did have a problem with one once where I would've freaked out had I not also been on the pill.

Vasectomy if dh follows through with it. If he doesn't. ..well there'll be another baby in our future.

My body can't handle hormonal bc and I don't feel we should have to use condoms being married.

Wow, it's weird to think about birth control lol We tried for four years for this baby.
Definitely no condoms. I don't like the idea either, never really enjoyed them, so if they aren't a necessity, not doing them. I didn't have too much of a hormonal effect from the pills, but that was a long time ago and I might now.
We might just do nothing, because another wouldn't be bad, and I'm infertile, so the odds are pretty tiny anyway that my body would suddenly start to work right.
When we are definitely absolutely done, my hubby has already said he wouldn't mind doing the vasectomy.

We aren't doing anything. I have never and will never do any birth control and the type of tumor I have means I have less than a 1% chance of getting pregnant on my own again. When we are done for sure, if we decide to do anything permanent, we're both getting snipped. I'm not going to ask hubby to do something I wouldn't and he feels the same. I doubt it ever comes to that since the stupid tumor will never go away.

Probably getting my tubes tied but I'm still on the fence. If I have to have a c-section I will likely get them tied during the procedure. I'm just not sure yet though.

If we choose to stop after this one, DH is getting the vasectomy. We will probably be done after one more, for a total of three, for sure and he will get the V after #3. I am concerned about temporary means though. This baby was kind of unexpected to say the least. We knew we wanted more after DD, but finding out when DD was barely 18 months old was kind of not cool for so many reasons and I don't want to be just finding out about another one after this baby until this baby is at least 2, hopefully 3.

I'm afraid to touch hormonal anything with a ten foot pole. If I do, it would be a pill that I can stop easily at the first sign of weirdness (particularly huge weight gain like I got with Yaz years ago). Not something invasive like an IUD or that takes months to clear out of my system like the shot. Condoms don't work for us. Something about my anatomy makes them outright painful for me. I think we will probably have to get much more strict with NFP, as in charting my temps and my using OPKs so we know when not to do it. I had a Fertility Friend account once upon a time. Maybe it's time I revived it after this one arrives.

Me and the other half are both planning on permanent control after baby is here.

This is my first pregnancy, and his second child.

he is going to get the big V and i have been looking in to the essure procedure.

of course this will be about a year after baby is born to be 100% sure on our choice. I cannot take hormonal birth control and it took us a year and a half to conceive, so back to condoms for us until we both are fixed.

DH is get a V done! If I have to have a Csection for whatever reason then I will have my tubes tied, but not unless I'm already going to be cut open. So far, all my births have been vaginal, and I am hoping it is this last time around as well

Breastfeeding infertility for 6 months (dont worry, I know it's not just BF and it works, theres more to it than that) and after that probably nothing. I'm infertile so getting pregnant isn't easy for me......what seems to work is to be around the same girl daily to regulate my system so I just wont do that again He's getting the big V done after the baby is about a year old. I want to wait until the risk of SIDS is gone. I know three people that have lost babies to that, so is a fear of mine.

I'm not sure what we will do immediately afterward t hormone birth control is no something I will consider because it affects breastfeeding.

I want DH to get a V but I won't push since I will not do the tubal... it's tough!

Happy wife, proud mom and aspiring Lactation Consultant.
