Now that I have a BF, I have had to re-evaluate my birth control options. Ex DH had a vasectomy after dd was born so I had not used anything in years. I was on the pill in high school and a little of college but went off in between long stretches of singleness. I am uncomfortable with hormonal forms of birth control, the biggest reason being they were not recommended due to my autoimmune disorder diagnosis. I have heard horror stories of the Mirena causing heavy bleeding, falling out or becoming stuck. Right now we use condoms and I track my ovulation by calender method. I abstain from sex during my highest fertility times (ovulation). I would feel so much more comfortable with another form of protection but I just don't know what. My kids are 9 and 11 and I am over 35 so I definitely do not want anymore babies. Sometimes I don't even want to have sex because I fear pregnancy. So many things to worry about when being a divorced mom is hard enough. What options have you ladies taken?
