There was an interesting conversation on Twitter on Sunday with @sandyel @ChickyMara @emmawaverman @aureliacotta @mommymoments @beingmarci @clippo @sharondv @NayChi and possibly more tweeps!
After having kids, what do you use for birth control? Does mom go on the pill? IUD? Or does dad use condoms? Get snipped?
I had tried a few options but I was honestly tired of putting more drugs into my body. Condoms are not full proof either.
So what is the best birth control after kids? His turn!
I wanted to share my own husband’s thoughts on the matter.
He got the snip snip – yes, a vasectomy.
And he’s thrilled about it and thinks all men should do it too.
“I work all day, I can’t come home and do everything for a month while my wife recovers.”
What??? Can’t do everything for a month??? Dog house!
“It’s easier for the man than it is for the woman. Women will be laid up in bed for a long day and men will end up having to do more around the house for a good month! It was more for selfish reasons…”
Grrrr! Time for a big ear-pull.
But before you judge and call him a jerk, my husband is a bit of huge jokester. He is really just kidding.
This is what he really means:
“For me, it’s only a 40-minute procedure, three days later and I’m fine. Best thing I’ve ever done.
All you feel is a little bit of tugging and pulling. After I got up, I had to walk a little bit slower because it was a touch sensitive. When I got home, I iced my private areas with a frozen bag of peas – it really works because it contours everything, if you know what I mean.
I had to wear tight Jockey’s because if you don’t, it’ll feel like you have a bad toothache.
I took one day off work and by the third day, I was shovelling the snow.
It’s the least I could do since I’ve seen her vagina stretch 10 cm.”
There you have it.
