I hate hormonal birth control and promised myself I would never go back on it, so when we're not knocked up/TTC, we just use condoms. Meh. It doesn't really bother me, and DH says he doesn't mind either, so whatever. We have talked about DH getting snipped after we have two though, so maybe he will pursue that sometime soon. It would be nice to not have to worry about condoms anymore, but I figure it's his body and he is the one that has to go through it, so that's 100% his decision, other than me saying that I'm for it if he wants it.

In all seriousness, I hate condoms for the simple reason that they, um, for lack of a better phrase, dry me up. We could use all the lube in the world and it wouldn't matter.
I have the Paragard (non hormonal copper IUD). So far my period sucks big donkey balls ever since I had it put in but I read that the 1st year is the roughest and it gets better eventually.
For those of you that dont like hormonal BC and dont like condoms, we used a get called Ortho options very effectively for most of our marriage.

Dh fixed I wasn't going to do bc pills again for birth control.

We are done. He got snipped. Yay.
I hated the pills. They made me mean and killed my sex drive. Kinda defeated the point. The IUD moved and caused horrendous complications. And we both hate condoms. Really his getting snipped was the only option. Besides, I had the c-section, he got to have the vasectomy.
Oh okay thanks
