    @eeniebeans:  We have decided that I will get an IUD after baby and then once that runs out, if we still don’t want another, he will get snipped.

    He’ll likely get a vasectomy AND I’ll go back on bc. I’ve not had any problems with it and I enjoy my very short, very light periods.

    IUD for a few years until we are SURE we are done. Then probably he will get a vasectomy – it’s only fair (kind of) We have to birth the babies!

    If I end up needing a C-section for medical reasons, it’s only a $10 co-pay to have your tubes tied while they’re in there. In that case, Darling Husband would also have a vastectemy. Both procedures have failure rates, so we’d want to be doubly sure. If I don’t have a c-section, he’ll get a vastectemy, and we’ll still use at minimum spermicide, possibly hormonal birth control if my period is all wacky like it was before I went on the pill.

    Darling Husband and I actually talked about this before we even got married.  After two kids, he’ll get a vasectomy, likely sometime in the 6 weeks before I’m given the green light for post-baby sex.  We’re both on the same page about only wanting two kids, but if we had a change of heart somewhere down the line, we’d adopt.

    A vas is generally cheaper and much less invasive than getting my tubes tied.  Plus, the recovery from a vas is quicker since it’s less invasive surgery.

    No children here — Maybe no children ever.

    But we have discussed vasectomies. It’s a lot easier for him to get snipped than it is for me.

    At this point we’ll use NFP. Definitely no kind of hormonal bc & Idk how I feel about any permenant measures…. if we did take some it would likely be a vas though.

    I had an IUD before we got married.  Now I’m on the pill until we decide to TTC.  After we have kids, I’ll probably get another IUD until we’re sure we’re done with children (he waivers between 0 and 3 kids), then it’s up to him to get snipped.  🙂  My dad got a vasectomy after my brother was born, and I know a few other guys who took care of it, so to speak, with no complications/baby scares.  I also know a woman who got pregnant after getting her tubes tied and now swears hysterectomy should be elective surgery.

    My FH doesn’t  want a vasectomy, and getting tubes tied is much too invasive. We would most likely get a copper IUD, and in the off chance that we do end up pregnant, I’d have to get an abortion.

    I’m currently not a candidate for IUDs, but my doctor said we’d revisit after childbirth. Traditional HBCs make me ill.

    I would be fine going back on the pill. I would consider an IUD but I’m allergic to a lot of metals so I’d have to do some research on it.

    My BC pills are free nowadays…

    There are non surgical permanent birth control options for women, but I think they are still pretty new and not common. After I am done birthing (no more than two, no older than 35) we will get fixed. I would prefer if it was both, but it is his decision if he wants to get snipped and I will do it regardless.

    We are planning on having one ( I already have a 4 year old from a previous relationship) and then he will get a vasectomy.

    @eeniebeans:  We have 3 kids and I had for cooper IUD for 5 years now that we’re ready to have more kids. After we’re done with 2 more kids I’ll get the cooper IUD again and leave it in the full 10 years it lasts. If I haven’t hit menopause by then I’ll get another cooper IUD. I wouldn’t ask Darling Husband to get a vasectomy.

    I’ll probably go back on the pill or consider an IUD. Then once we’re sure we’re REALLY done, we’ll discuss it. Because I’ve heard that vasectomies are less invasive than tubal ligations, I assume he’ll end up getting a vasectomy. That’s probably something we should discuss soon, just to get the conversation started.
