 So my DH wants me to have another baby.  HE'S OUTTA HIS DAMN MIND is what I say! lol I've gotten my tubes tied after our last child b/c we agreed 3 c-sections were enough for my body.  He ultimately wanted 5 kids.  3 kids are ENOUGH for me.  If I have anymore I might really need to be committed lol He says he is still trying to get me pregnant even with my tubes tied b/c it can be undone.  I know it can but it's not common, is it?  The doc wouldn't cut or burn my tubes b/c of my age.  She wanted me to still have that option even though I told her I was 110% sure I was happy with 3 children.

 so here's my problem with that... I have enough health problems so adding a birth control like the pill that has horrible side effects wouldn't be too great.  lol Condoms... when I suggested that he made a point of saying we're married and it feels more intimate without "protection" but I'm seriously considering SOMETHING b/c I don't want to get pregnant again! lol I have been told a hysterectomy would be best for me with my period issues and everything but I refuse.  I'm only 24 and don't want to go through all that hormone therpy issues or anything like that and IDT my period is a good enough reason to have my uterus cut out of me. lol

I did the Essure method of tube tying. There is NO going back on that one. Now I know here my husband had to sign consent for me to get it done, you may want to check your state since you are married. I think it's a bunch of BS but he had to

 Ultimately it is your body and you have to deal with the mental and physical toll it takes on you. That is sweet that he wants more children with you, but most everything mental and physical falls on you. Plus there is the financial aspect(don't know your situation, so not presuming). I have 3 and I am at my mental crazy woman limit, 1 more would definitly send me to the funny farm.

I have 4 kids lol and got my tubes tied a year ago.  I think its extremely rare for you to get pregnant after that.  I also just got the rubber band around them, no cutting or burning.  So far so good!

My best friend got pregnant after getting her tubes tied. But she miscarried at about 7 weeks.  She would have been happy having more kids but she had her tubes tied because she had major complications during her last pregnancy (premature by 9 weeks and she ((the mom)) almost died). 

There is a higher chance of an ectopic pregnancy if you get pregnant after you have your tubes tied though
