JUST FOR THOSE WHO ARE MARRIED!!!!!

Do you use birth control? If so how many forms (list them if you dont mind)? Have you had an "oops baby"?

Additional questions if you don't mind.

How important is using birth control to you? Why?

I had a partial hysterectomy 2 years ago.  Before that, I had gotten my tubes tied when my youngest son was a year old. I had been on several different kinds of birth control pills before that off and on for several years. I don't remember all the names.

No we never used bc. We wanted children right away but never got pregnant until after out 19 yr anniversary. After I had her we decided we didn't want another because with our luck it would take ten more years and I'd be to old. I got my tubes tied now.

No. I don't because I am Catholic and morally opposed. My hubby is not Catholic though and he uses condoms sometimes. Hopefully I can convince him to stop someday and we can use fertility awareness methods. Our first baby was a surprise but a welcome one :)

I used birth control (pill) before we decided to TTC, then after our last child (shot, just one and then we didn't use anything). When our last child was 2, DH got a vasectomy.

We've never had a oops baby. Obviously, not having more children is important to us considering DH got snipped. LOL.

 I am on Depo & have been since DD was born in June 2007. 

First pregnancy wasn't planned but not unwanted - ended in miscarriage.  Next two were planned - DS 12.30.02 & DD 6.29.07.  I was not on any sort of birth control at time of conception.

I am happy with 2 kids.  We are almost done with daycare.  To be honest, I wouldn't want to go back to paying $3.25 for 50 hrs/week!
