  • I don't know about either one of those. My husband had a vasectomy done so we don't have to worry about it. But here's a bump to help you out!

  • We use condoms, and don't have sex when I'm ovulating. I also have a diaphragm and spermicide but I've only used it twice.

  • Maybe try the mirena or if you don't do hormones very well maybe try the paraguard IUD which doesnt have hormons. if all else fails talk to your doctor.

  • Past using birth control and when I needed to use, my S/O said a condom was like wearing a rain coat in the shower. He got a vasectomy after our 3rd child. Before that I was 8 yrs getting my 2nd child and 5 yrs getting my 3rd, so birth control wasn't a real problem for us anyway.
