So I don't want to get "fixed"...Right now...I don't think I am ready for another baby...lol...I am tired! and BUSY!!!!!!!!!!! I'd love another one...(blessings!) but being pregnant is so hard on me...
BUT I don't want to take any hormones...they really mess me up...
Other than condoms what else can I do?
Anyway, I don't cycle at all...but I did get pregnant w/ DD and I hadn't had a period for over a year before...?!
Had to use provera and clomid for the other 2:0)
What exactly is an IUD (I know its put in you) but how does it work?
I believe, but dont quote me on this, the IUD works by messing with the lining of your uterus so that it is inhospitable for an embryo to implant. The ones with hormones also work by preventing ovulation like hormonal birth control but I think they dont affect you as much since they act locally. But I'm no expert....I'll try to find some info for you.
We're currently using the "gee, it took me 3 years to get pg with Aiden so I can't get pregnant right now" birth control.
I'd suggest IUD too (check insurance, they might cover it). Also charting can be good. Then you could just use condoms when fertile. If I ever get AF, I'm going to attempt charting again. I've had years of experience....
