I want to know the options available other than contraceptive pills. My hubby is against me taking pills.

Thanks everyone for responding...I get a fair idea by your replies. I guess with all this pre-information, I can go to my obgyn to check what would suit my body. Thx all ones again :)

i have two kids and we said no more, so i got the iud(mirena). it is great. very light periods for a while then i was lucky enough that they stopped altogether. and you can change your mind at anytime and have it taken out.

my obgyn suggested mirena b/c you can take it out if you end up changing your mind about trying for kids later on... you have to get pre approved by insurance but theyll find that out for you... ask them for your options, they can help you decide whats best for YOUR body!

IUD or one of you getting fixed. I could not take the pill and after our 4th we were done, so my husband got fixed (his choice). Talk to your obgyn about all your options bc i know there are a lot out there.

I have several friends who have gotten intra uterine contraceptive devices (IUD). I don't have one personally because we're going to start trying again next year. They come with hormones (mirena) that can help you have lighter periods, or no hormones (implanon) which is good if you are breastfeeding. They can be placed for up to 5 yrs (I think), just ask your dr usually insurance pays for it. There's also a new procedure called Essure (I think) in which they implant something through the uterus to block your fallopian tubes so that eggs can't be released anymore. It has a really short recovery time and works within 3 months. I think this next child will be the last for me as well. Hope this helps you!
