Ugh, I don't know what to do about birth control! I've been stressing about it because I get my fertility back quite early... at about 5 mo. PP with my first baby and about 2 months PP with my second (yes, that's super early!!) and I cosleep and nurse on demand. But we are sure that this is our last baby, so neither of us want to take any chances.
I do not react well to hormonal birth control, and I tried the Mirena IUD but it was not at all for me. I have a slightly irregularly shaped uterus, so I think that contributed to the problems. It also killed my sex drive.
DH keeps saying he's going to get a vasectomy, which I guess is probably what we'll do, but for some reason it doesn't sit well with me. I guess it's the permanent reversal of one's fertility... even though I know we don't want more kids it just seems so... unnatural. There are also some speculative side-effects that worry me. But really there doesn't seem another way that is that effective. I did FAM for quite a while but we're not *that* good at it.
