Re: Birth control?

We're not done having kids and we're fine with whatever timing God gives us. Breastfeeding usually keeps me infertile for at least 8 or 9 mos at the beginning, so no birth control for us.

Re: Birth control?

I really want a 4th baby so it will be condoms and charting for us. DH wants to get the big V done after this deployment but we will be talking about #4 I am sure.

Re: Birth control?

We are done after this, but neither of us wants anything permanent, so I'm thinking I'm going to get an IUD.

Re: Birth control?

Condoms and NFP for us. I can't do any hormonal stuff and am not ready to commit to anything permanent, though DH would get snipped tomorrow if I said ok.

Re: Birth control?

Guess I will look into the IUD as well. Does it interfere with breastfeeding?
With DS I got my period back right away after having a 10 week PP bleed.
Love the idea of no birth control at all (I get wacky and depressed on bcp) but I really don't want another baby after this one either. We were thinking of getting DH snipped but I am only 23 and he is 25 and I don't know that we are 100% done either. We might have another many many years down the line.

DH had his V done the day before we found out we were preggers. No more BC for us!

Re: Birth control?

Not sure here either. I've typically been on BCPs most of my adult life, but they totally interfere with my libido so I'd much prefer something else. We'll see what DH says. I know he'll want me back on the pill though.

Re: Birth control?

This is a post deployment baby and DD took us 5 years of fertility treatments so in theory we aren't too worried about BC. I really should start weighing my options though!

Re: Birth control?

I'm going to go on some sort of pill until DH has his surgery! After my first baby, I went on Depo, and got pregnant right after my 3rd shot! After my third, I had a Mirena IUD, and well, let's just say number 4 was a huge suprise!! My Dr. is still amazed that I got pregnant with an IUD, but it does happen!
