I'm not interested in using hormonal birth control.
Originally, we'd planned for dh to have a vasectomy. Then I read about a study that showed increased risk for dementia later in life in men who have had them. Maybe a very small risk (it was a small study), but I can't see going forward knowing that.
A tubal ligation isn't likely to be covered by insurance, is it? Now, of course, I wish I'd had one during my last c-sec. But I wasn't at all ready then.
I recently was reading about a non surgical tube blocker (Essure?)--it seems to work very well, but is a relatively new technology.
I'm 40, so my years of fertility are waning--maybe we should just continue using barrier methods until menopause hits?
thanks for any experiences/insight you can share.
