They brought this up on the May Board and I was curious what you ladies plan on doing for birth control after baby?
I'm pretty sure we will be using the withdrawal method. It worked for us for 5 years so I don't see why we wouldn't just go the cheapest route. I have also had a bad experience with bcp in the past and it makes me hesitant to get anything like an IUD because of the hormones.
It's called lactational amenorrhea. It's a kind of natural birth control, but not all women benefit. I am really hoping it works for me this time!
Im with you, Elizabeth. I hate hormonal bc. We will most likely use condoms. In the past we have discussed DH getting snipped after we have two children, so I would be supportive if he decides to go that route so we can stop fooling around with condoms, but it's DH's body so it's 100% his decision when/if to do that. Weird to think that we're (most likely) done having babies!

Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.
Since my DS was born in July of 2006, we have used either me being on birth control pills or just the pull out method and each worked very well for us. This time around though, we are done. I think we have decided that if I need a c-section I will have them tie my tubes while they are in there. If we can do a vaginal birth, DH will be getting snipped. If neither of those happen before we start back DTD after she is born I will ask for birth control pills at my 6 week check and will use those and the pull out method until either i've been on the pills long enough or DH gets snipped.
Thank you Cristan. That makes sense I like the idea of a natural birth control.
Well as for me I want to have at least four more maybe even six more after this one. But I dont want to have another one right away. I want to have some time with brayden and learn how the whole raising a child and being a mommy thing goes. lol so we will prolly wait at least two years maybe three before having another one. As for birth control in the meantime. depending on how bad my period is , i might go on the pill. But if it's not so bad then condoms and pulling out will be fine
