Any advice on type of birth control? I don't think there is anything that works for me. I took a type of pill in early adulthood but went off when I was diagnosed with high blood pressure (which was early on, maybe 20). Early on with my husband we experimented with different condoms but there is no variety that doesn't take pretty much all the sensation away for both of us. I am a bit scared of IUDs due to stories of it falling out, puncturing something, getting pregnant anyway, or being felt by the man during sex. Plus, I am depression-prone (previous episodes and on meds) and most of the hormonal options seem to have a risk of depression relapse. Besides in the very beginning, in the 13 years of marriage we have never used birth control. My only pregnancy was with the help of a Reproductive Endocrinologist with the help of medications and IUI, for combined factors (problems with reproduction from both me and my husband). I have always had it in the back of my mind that one day a pregnancy could just happen as unlikely as it is, but hasn't. I know when working with the RE he said at least at the time just from my husband's situation it would be extremely unlikely to get pregnant without help. I also have PCOS with little to no ovulation and unpredictable cycles. I know I can't rely on our subfertility/infertility as a birth control method after surgery. Even now, a month before surgery is scheduled, we had sex recently and I'm thinking crap, I am going to have to test prior to surgery just in case. I just have no idea what can work for us. Hopefully blood pressure won't be as much a concern post op, but the mood concerns plus not being thrilled about IUDs and condoms there still looks like no good options. I know I might have to suck it up and get a IUD or something....but anyone have any ideas?
