Hi, my husband and I have three healthy, wonderful children and are looking into permanent birth control options. We've decided that if we want more kids down the road, we'll adopt. If you and your significant other have made this choice, which option did you choose and how did it work out for you (any negative side effects)? Any thoughts on Essure? Thanks for your help!Answer Question

We decided that hubby is getting a vasectomy. I am pregnant with our 4th which will make 2 boys and 2 girls. We aren't rich and we aren't poor, somewhere inbetween. We'll do pretty well with 4, any more than that and it will put a strain. I went through the pregnancies and deliveries so Hubs took it upon himself to get the info and decided to have it done.

Oh - something to consider, not all vasectomies are created equal, lol. There are various ways they're done, and some are more effective than others. Here's a link that talks about the different methods. If you go with this, I would talk to the Dr about what method (or combo of methods) he/she will use...
