Question for those who are married.

Posted by   + Show Post
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?

We don't use birth control. I'm very aware of my cycles. Been off bc 8 years and have only gotten pregnant the 2 times we wanted to.

We use Natural Family Planning.

Our first pregnancy was a surprise (Before we were married or using this method) Subsequent pregnancies were planned.

It's not at this point, but it has at times been a "not right now" moment. NFP works for us. And if it failed that would be fine too.

Birth control pills. No oops baby. In 20 years of using the pill, one planned pregnancy (of course I had gone off it to get PG).

Ir's very imoirtant to me because we only want one child and are thinking about having my husband do something more permanent.

My tubes are tied. My first and second were oops babies, used a condom with first, was on the pill with second. Dd three was sort of an oops. Shortly after dd 2 was born I was supposed to get hysterectomy. 4 different drs told us we couldn't conceive. So we weren't using anything. But we were wanting another at the time of finding out I was pregnant.

I used the pill. Ds was a surprise. But that is what happens when you go 70 days no water and you celebrate the day you get it back. Ds is now 2 1/2. When he was 5 months old I had what was left of my left ovary out. So I now have no overies left. So no more kids for us. We may not of thought we where ready for ds but he is by far unloved.

Birth control is very important to us because we have a six week old and don't want another until she's out of diapers I am on the pill and for now we use condoms as well

My dh doesn't want anymore babies but we don't use birth control. Just the pull out method.. I want another baby so I don't say anything. It has really put a damper on our sex life. He has talked about getting snipped.

We did not use birth control, none of my children are "oops" babies- We've held the mentality as when it happens it happens and not obsessing over TTC.  In May, my DH had surgery to remove varicoceles and had a vasectomy done at the same time.
