In a marriage/relationship, who is responsible for the Birth Control?

Are both of you responsible for the birth control? Or is it all on you?

What form of birth control are you using now?

Would he get a vasectomy if you asked him to?

Both us are. We agreed that for now, I will take the pill. When we are sure we are done with children, he will get snipped.

We both were. We used a diaphragm until we knew we were done and then he got a vasectomy.

Both.  I have used the pill, he has used condoms, and if I had not needed a c-section with my last baby (I had a tubal done at the same time), he would have gotten a vasectomy.

I chose to get an IUD so he doesn't need to worry about using anything. I know that sometimes the IUD can fail but my boys took 2 years and 1 year of ttc so although i don't want anymore kids, if the IUD were to have and I managed to get pregnant it was meant to be.

Me. I feel that it's my uterus and me having to raise the child, so regardless of him using bc or not, I will always protect myself too. When I am done having babies I will get my tubes tied.

Both of us are.
At the moment, we're not sure we're done, so I'm using mirena.
However, after we decide that we're done and/or we have #2, he's getting a vasectomy.

Both of you!

I have the paragurd.

He has already said he would get fixed.

Birth control doesnt like my body for some reason.

And i refuse to be cut open again unless its 100% needed.
