JackiBean:  my situation is different. Fi and I had a daughter in January (yay) and I got the IUD in 6 weeks PP. I had been telling him I would like a wedding night baby (September, 26, 2015 lol) but as our daughter is getting older I want to give her more time for just her plus, financially it would be VERY expensive for day care to have two littles ones so close without any sort of assistance! I might get it taken out still, before the 5 years is up bc I would be about 31 and I don’t really want to have kids I much past 30.

JackiBean:  I’m in a similar boat, but just 5 years later. I got the mirena iud when my DH and I were still dating. Fast forward 5 years, we have:

Been married for 1.5 yrs.

Bought a house last year

Complete house renovations

Traveled to Jamaica, mexico, Europe, Hawaii, and recently Peru. 

Got a dog 3yrs ago that’s the center of our lives

Both got new jobs & promoted

All this is to say that 5 years passed so quickly and I just took out my IUD and we will be TTC in the next month or two! I am happy for you and your DH and wish you have such a rewarding and fun 5 yrs before babies!

I got mine in 2011, and it’s the Paragard, so it lasts 10 years.  I’m definitely not waiting that long!  I’ll probably have mine taken out in the next 2-4 years.  It’s a waste of free birth control, but I knew that would be the case when I got it!
