  • for me? it was getting my husband a vasectomy :) before that we used condoms and amazingly we never had any surprise pregnancies! I cant use Birth control it messes with me and hubby agreed i was not a nice person on them when we were dating plus the insomnia sucked. so condoms is what we used till he was ready to get fixed.

  • I can not use anything with hormones and I do not believe in IUDs either. I tried to have my tubes tied after my last son was born but the hospital is not permited to preform tubals because they are a Catholic hospital... We looked in to a vasectomy but just haven't gotten there yet. So, for now we use either condoms or sponges. We prefer the sponges, but they that expensive. I am trying to get a diaphram which will replace the sponge, but as of yet, haven't gotten one...

  • Get the book Taking Control of Your Fertility, learn how your body works and try natural Family Planning. When done correctly it is effective as birth control.

  • What about a diaphragm? They work without hormones and have no side effects. They never caused a stroke, infertility or PID; you won't gain weight, get depressed, or lose your libido; your periods won't be affected. They have never been the subject of class action lawsuits and are instantly reversible.

  • Diaphragm's can cause a increase in bladder infections and is used with spermicide. Spermicide can cause vaginal irritation and may cause an allergic reaction.
