We have one 2yr old daughter, Hubby wants to get "fixed" so I don't have to be on BC.

 So here's the deal, Hubby & I have been together since we were 17, married at 18 & now have a 2 year old daughter. We are both almost 21. Hubby is happy with his Princess & doesn't want any more...I would like one more. If we do try again, it won't be for another few years because of school among other things but neither of us want me to have to be on Birth Control because of the effects it has on me. I have had  the Mirena IUD for 2 years now, it's the only BC I've ever had, and I loved it, up until recently...I have been having horrible migrains, moodiness & acne breakouts, I'm assuming from the Hormones and I don't wanna try tons of different forms of BC...I guess I just want some opinions on the matter...I would like to have another baby, but I am also happy with just our daughter and would love to not have to be on BC. My only worry is what if my 21 year old hubby gets snipped and then later on we regret it? Ughh lots to think & talk about...prob should talk to my doc too. Thanks in advance for anyone who replies!!! = )

Are you sure it's the Mirena that's causing the migraines and stuff?

Y'all are still so young. I would wait. Use condoms.

it can be undone if you want to have another baby down the road. I had my tubes done and if I would have known I would bleed every other week I wouldn't have done it and had my hubs get snipped. He feels so bad that I am bleeding all the time. I talked to my dr and he sad it could happen. Wow doc didn't think you needed to tell me that. kinda pissed about that if you can't tell. I would have loved to have had a third but we can't afford to.  We both work fulltime and still struggle, thats life though right.

i was 23 and he was 31 when he got snipped. we have one son who is just now 1.5. the doc told us it can be reversible but don't bank on it. you can always get some swimmers frozen if you arent completely sure
