Aimee Blessed Momma to 4 amazing boys, P ~ 9 H ~ 7 J ~ 4 and B ~ 1. Happily married to D Living my almost dream life on an urban homestead, hoping for our forever land to find us soon!
But pretty sure that won't happen, SOOOO I am set on getting Essure done. I started researching 'permanent solutions' after our last loss. I get pregnant FAR too easily these days even with barrier methods, and NFP! Vasectomy, tubal ligation (various methods), and Essure. Of the 3 Essure had much lower risks than the others. It makes sense, is less invasive, and won't compromise blood supply to the ovaries. (I'm just not ready to deal with the possibility of an accidental chemical hysterectomy)

I do think I'm going to get a traditional tubal if I end up with a c section for whatever reason, but I'm not planning on that! It will be in my birth plan though just in case, it would be nice to get it all over with at once.

It's funny, but with dd, I was pretty sure she was going to be our only child until just in the last year. Now that we finally decided to have a second, I'm not sure anymore! I feel less confident this time than I did the first time, and we ended up having a second anyway, sooo.... who knows!

Me 41, single mom to dd 4/2001 and ds 7/17/2010
I can't take hormones (even if I wanted to) and I had a Mirena once, years ago, and HATED it, so I don't think I want to repeat the experience. Also for sure don't want to mess with hassles of condoms, diaphragms, caps, etc...
Karyn, wife to Colby (9/4/04) and homeschooling mama to Ryan (3/11/08), Tyler (7/15/10), and a new little bean (10/24/12)!
We used a diaphragm for a couple of years with no pregnancies (until I lost it...that's why I'm PG now!) so we may do that again until we decide what to do permanently. We're only 31 and 34 and apparently plenty fertile...don't want to take chances!
DD, 8, DS, 6, and Baby DS born July 1, 2010 Married to DH for 10 years!
Im pretty sure we are done, but Im not ready to permanently give up our fertility, ya know?

Had a copper IUD last time which was great except for the CRAZY bleeding during my period. Ugh. I hated that part though.
Me + Dh = Dd1(9.5 yrs) + Dd2(7 yrs) and Ds(4.5 yrs)
I guess our only options left are either the copper IUD, or the withdrawal/timing method. I'll probably give the IUD a try, and if that doesn't work we'll just have to try the old fashioned way. Seeing how I probably have around 20 more years until menopause...I'm really hoping we can find something that works!
I'm also allergic to latex, so conventional condoms are out...and we have way too much sex to be able to afford the non-latex condoms
Someday there'll be a fantastic, non-permanent, non-hormonal method we can all use. Maybe a sperm-deactivator for guys?
