Re: What's the best long-term option?

Kap7270: The overall risk for an ectopic pregnancy for a woman not on birth control is .3%-.5%. These are stats that I got from my husband when we were looking into it. He's a doc so he had all this info handy when we were discussing it. There is something extremely unsettling about the whole thing for me. Even with the risk being so low. I think I just prefer him getting a vasectomy. I know it carries it's own risks, but I think most people would agree they would rather have something happen to them over their unborn child. We have one so we still have time to decide. We're TTA. I just went off the mini pill which I loved while breastfeeding but now I can't stand it. We'll be doing family planning until we're ready for baby 2.

Re: What's the best long-term option?

I'm pregnant with #2 and our last (we have DD, this will be DS, so one of each).

I am having a scheduled c-section but have opted not to have tubal due to a hernia repair I also need. DH says he will get the vasectomy. But we will wait 6 months after this LO is born just to make sure we are truly done and everything is ok. His dad had one, so he is comfortable.

My mom had an IUD for 10 years, a copper one, so that is another option. But my body rejects a lot of things (I don't have anymore piercings as I have had so many issues, even with my ears). I'd be worried about the IUD.
