My 2 yr old son was supposed to be my last child, but the good lord has blessed me with another baby lol. I was on Depo for 2 years and hubby had a vesectomy, He didnt feel comfy with the fact that a tubal ligation had a lot of side effects and risks, not only that it is considered a major operation and your put under general anestesia.
Tubal ligations make you prone to ectopic pregnancies, something my step mom has endured 4 times, one that made her have her left tube fully removed.
The hubby didnt want anymore children, so in our household, the one who didn't want anymore was the one to get fixed, so that was my hubby. Although the vesectomy worked like it should, he couldnt wait the 6 weeks of no intercourse so we ended up getting pregnant this time lol.
I plan on trying an IUD this ime around, just for extra protection, I know deep down my body probably cannot handle another pregnancy for health reasons, so for extra protection I plan on using a form of birth control, ontop of DH being spermie free lol.
I broached the subject of a vasectomy as well. I didn't want to push it. I just dropped it in conversation and will let him mull it over for a while. If he gets the vasectomy about the same time I go into labor, we won't have to worry about the 6 weeks before resuming relations since neither one of us will be allowed to have sex. Anyone else have input about the essure method?
