How to get your SO to talk about having more kids?

Ok we are a young couple although very much in love we have a 16 month old now and we are expecting again any time now. i have asked him if he would like to have to more children and never gives me a response but i dont wanna go on birth control becuase i dont have any health problems and the side effects scare me too much, i would just assume to stick with condoms they work just as good. but sometimes i feel like he wasnt ready to kids yet either. any advice?

  • Use a condom until he wants more or until you both decide. You can also get an IUD to help avoid another pregnancy. Maybe he is unsure if he wants more at this point and wants to see what its like with 2 before he decides on 3.

  • Well my suggestion is to wait until after your 2nd baby is here before discussing more kids. You should also talk to your ob/gyn about birth control options and see what would work best for you.

  • Do what you want. You are so young, and keep your options open. Use some type of Birth Control. They have so many options now.
