Condoms are the worst, am I right?

For a variety of reasons which I will not get into, I cannot be on hormonal birth control. My husband and I have only ever been with each other, and we've never had to use condoms before now and GODDAMNIT TO THE FIREY HELLS those things blow. They slip off, don't roll all the way down, they don't feel good and just generaly gross me out. We've tried a few different brands and it's not that they're not long enough, they're not *wide* enough for him. Which, you know, sounds riddiculous, given that you can put them on over your head and blow them up with your nose (am I the only person who has done that?)  It makes me really hate sex, because the whole time I am paranoid about it slipping off and getting knocked up and we do not want any more kids. Ugh. Just needed to vent. 

Anyway, I am debating getting an IUD (a copper one, not the hormonal one) but I know people who have had IUD babies and that scares me, too. Advice?

I agree they suck. But I don't want anymore babies.

I am paranoid it is going to slide off inside of me. It happened to my friend.

I have an IUD and still use condoms because I'm paranoid lol. We don't use them everytime, but we usually do. I just don't want to risk it.

Have him get a vasectomy. It's easy, almost painless and covered by most insurances so its next to free.

I'm no help because we use the pull out method. There is a few I have been looking into but still haven't decided which one and if I want to get on any bc that is.

I had the 5 year iud & it was pretty effective :) I didn't get pregnant but there are some fertile mertiles out there. I agree condoms are a pain in the ass.

Right!!

I'll take using annoying condoms over getting knocked up again. :)
