You really want a list Meme? LOL

Ortho-novum BCP. Hated--migraines/vomiting
Diaphragm. Hated--allergic to spermicide
Condoms. Hated.
Triphasil BCP. No side effects...just the loss of my libido for a decade...
Micronor mini-pill (current method). No side effects but cannot miss a pill! I spent a humiliating monday morning last fall sitting with the college girls at our local Planned Parenthood office, getting an emergency pill after a wild saturday night/sunday morning.

Why, oh why, won't he get the Big Snip? LOL

DW was on the pill until 1995; I then got snipped (BTW-I never called it "The Big Snip".).Nani, I hope your DH "cums" around to my view of the V.

My DH is in charge of birth control since I can't take anything hormonal.


And I have no preference for what it is. ;-)

I have taken:
Triphasil - didn't like it
Ortho Tri Cyclin Purple
Ortho Tri Cyclin LO
Ortho Evra

Now we are currently using the "pull and pray" method but DH has agreed to get a 'V' (whoo hoo)
Now it is just a matter of getting him to follow through with that agreement.

Woo hoo is right. Did you use my experience with the V as part of your argument?

Christi,

How did you get him to say yes to a V?
My DH agrees w/ me, no more kids...but he won't take that step...

Nani,

After we both decided we didn't want any more kids I went online to vasectamy.com and printed off a chart that list pros and cons on every method of BC you can think of.
After that we decided that either I would get the tubal or he would get the 'V'!
I went back to the website and we read through the procedure and the cost of both and as it turns out the vasectamy was ALOT cheaper, safer, and more depedable than the tubal so he agreed but still really didn't want to so I told him about some of the things I read about them on this board and I found out he has a friend who has had one so I had him talk to him about it when he called last night and DH said "okay I will do it"
