We used condoms before and after we got married. We did not have an oops baby because of birth control failure. We quit using it for a few weeks and we thought nothing happened. We decided to use it again only it really was too late and I was already pregnant. After our son was born we used condoms again until we decided to concieve number 2. We went back to that until DH had a vasectomy. Birth control was/is important to us because we didn't want to just have a bunch of kids we couldn't financially or emotionally take care of. We decided we had our number and that our family is complete so DH had his surgery.
Quoting Anonymous:We don't use anything. I was involuntarily sterilized. Both of my fallopian tubes are blocked with scar tissue.
we dont. i had to take fertility pills to get pregnant in the past because i have polycystic ovarian syndrome. we figure if we actually do manage to get pregnant without the pills it will be a welcomed miracle.... (my youngest is 4 now and that hasnt happened....thinking about taking fertility pills again and trying for another baby)
I've had my tubes tied but we use a backup protection also. When I had my ds I almost died and the doctors told me it wasn't safe to have any more. Also i could never have an abortion myself (not judging others it's just not for me) so I don't want to put myself in that situation.
I did get pregnant once accidentally in between my dd and ds and was considering adoption. It was really hard on my body though and I wound up miscarrying.
