With my third baby, I felt pretty strongly that the baby was a boy, and surprise, she was a girl. It felt weird to have been so wrong all along.
Thank you again, everyone! How do you have someone removed from the vaccine registry? I woulld rather not have my children's school have access to that info.
Great, thank you very much. So, is this a form I can bring with me when I enroll them (available online somewhere)? Or do I need to actually pick it up from the school? I'm moving from out of state, and my kids will need to start school soon after we arrive, so I'd like to limit the lag time.
I'm in MN, and am in the process of enrolling my kids in school. While many of the sites I've consulted (like NVIC) say that MN has a religious exemption to vaccination, I can't find anything like that written in the actual health code (please correct me if I'm wrong!).

I know the amount of bleeding decreases the longer you have it in.
Yes, most women have a significant reduction in bleeding, and something like 50-60% (can't remember for sure) have a complete cessation of periods after several years of use.
I would seriously try the Mirena. It's very different than traditional hormonal BC -- the hormones are much lower dose, and they're not going through your digestive tract, they're localized to your reproductive organs. Plus, there's no estrogen. Most women tolerate Mirena very well -- it has one of the highest satisfaction rates of any form of BC (90+% say they're happy with it). I have one and am very satisfied, and have had it for almost two years. At this point, my...
