In your opinion what is the best........

Birth control method?

My husband and I believe that we are done after Autumn is born seeing as how we will have 2 kids, I offered to tie my tubes, but retracted that statement seeing as how I am only 26 and just not ready for that yet. I can't take the pill due to history of blood clots and my husband read that some contraceptives can make you lose your sex drive. I was told that the shot can make you very moody for the 3 months that it lasts. What do you feel is the best and why? Do you have experience with it?

  • nope hubby won't get snipped and he won't use condoms we always used the pullout method before having kids but I would rather not do that anymore, I want to make sure we are doing better before having anymore if we decide to

  • If you are really thin the patch works well, otherwise, I used the nuvaring. I LOVED it!! No weight gain or mood swings, no periods, no "forgetting" and no babies! I was fertile myrtle - 3 kids + 5 miscarriages = 8 pregnancies!!
