personally i think you are a little young too but its your body i would just hate for you to want one more baby and not be able to. i am 24 and my dr wont do that even if i wanted. all i can say is really think about it first.

oh and dont get the depo shot thats what i got at my 6 week check up and wont be getting it ever again the side affects are awful. i think we will just be using condoms for awhile.

I'm thinking of getting my tubes tied too since we will have a girl and a boy and I'm happy with 2...but I'm only 23 so I'm still thinking about it. I used Mirena after DD and it was great for the first year then I started gaining weight and it became dislodged which hurt VERY bad. My cousin got Copper T and she loves it. She's had Mirena too and she says Copper T is much better. In the end it's your body and your decision.

I had the Mirena IUD and had a lot of problems with depression, anxiety, mood swings and weight gain. I got it shortly after having my daughter so they thought it had a lot to do with the post partum depression I suffered with anyway but the problems never got any better. Any depression medication I would be on would only work for a little while and then lose effect. I have heard others had great experiences with the IUD but I just thought I would tell you my experience in case you get it and get similar symptoms.

I want to get my tubes tied too, only because it doesn't matter what I use I end up pregnant. Pill, condom, Mirena(ended up miscarrying). I think that if I have another I will be done. I have been told that I will regret it too, but honestly I don't think I will. I want to go back to college and I can't do that if I keep having kids. When I am done school if I want more kids I will just adopt, foster or babysit.

I'm not too sure actually, we have done our research on hormonal birth control, and knowing what we know now we are orry we ever used it, so I'm leaning more toward natural family planning.

 i just got the paragard IUD and it has no hormones and lasts for 10 years..so that is a good alternative, i'm 21 and would never consider getting them tied but who knows if i will want another in 10 years.

 really you can get your tubes tied at 21, where i live you have to be 25 or have 4 kids

I've heard though of people getting pregnant on those, then when they go to remove it because most time they have to it causes a miscarriage????? Did they say anything about that when you got it???
