Default Birth Control Methods that aren't the Condom or Pill?


Alright, so wife is now asking me (after birth of our baby girl), to come up with some form of birth control...

So.. Aside from condoms (she's sensitive to latex and really who likes them?) and the pill (which wasn't good for her either) what other forms have we got?

I know there's a vasectomy, but I was wondering if anyone had any natural birth control maybe?

Pull and pray isn't an option?

Why not a vasectomy?

I know a guy who swears that billings method works and swears by it and even teaches a class. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billings_ovulation_method

Personally it would make me nervous

A diaphram with spermicide works well and I think they make them out of materials other than latex now . Combine with it the rhythm method.. in other words, no sex on ovulation days.

My soon to be ex REFUSED a vasectomy. I had a tubal ligation. I didn't want to risk it - and the pill wasn't worth MORE HEALTH issues for me. The final decision and responsibility then fell on me. His logic? I WAS the one that "cooked" them, so....

My 3 sister's husbands had vasectomies (and one brother)- with the exclusion of one bil - but sister could not get pregnant.

We were doing the Rhythm method before and it worked well. I guess I was looking for maybe a combination of natural herbs or supplements that could act as a form of birth control.

Seems like it's more focused on augmenting fertility though.

I'll be honest... A vasectomy would be the last option on my list.. I'm kinda a coward when it comes to someone taking a knife (or laser) to my nether regions.. I know I'm being a baby about it... But it just makes me cringe...

I hear THAT - took me a good couple of weeks to even walk without stooping over. AND OMG the stabbing sharp pains shooting all over!! Laughing was painful. Surgery scares me so much.

I was very happy about the bikini incision. (I really wished he would of spared me. But it wasn't meant to be. he loves himself far too much)

I guess it really has come down to vasectomy..... :/

I guess Oral would work for the interim, since she had a C-section I have heard that it can take up to a year for her to be "back in action" so to speak.. So leaves me time to think too..

I have heard that there are different kinds of birth control pills too, and supposedly one for men? (although I guess it's not out yet, and would have weird side effects???)

Interesting.. Seems like a good way to go.. Thanks for the tip..

Since the wife is outta commission for at least 6 months now anyway... I have some time to put this into use and go get a fertility test.

I remember hearing about the hot water, not the Papaya seeds.. I'm not a big fan of Papaya, but I guess you can buy Papaya extract in pill form, so that might work.

Actually, I was thinking of trying to find papaya extract, you know, something with 8 times the potency of eating a bunch of seeds. Sort of like those green tea pills

However, devils advocate playing and saying that the extract is extracted from WHAT exactly??

I would buy organic only, and be sure it "seed" extract, not from the fruit or the leaves. Not sure who sells it though.

Looks like it's available on alibaba...

http://www.alibaba.com/showroom/papa...d-extract.html

I have never ordered anything from alibaba, think it's alright to do so?

Looks like they are selling it as a weight loss product.. I wonder if they also tell you that it can make you infertile...... Be interesting lol... Weight loss and birth control together, what a combo....
