Birth Control After 3rd Consecutive M C

0 Replies
Elle - April 8

Hi Ladies, you have given me so much support on this forum, and I appreciate it more than you know! Three weeks ago I had my third consecutive miscarriage, so my husband and I have decided to put ttc on the back burner for a while, but definitely not permanently. This recent loss was by far the most painful yet (physically and emotionally) so consequently we are not real anxious to try again. In the meantime, we need to use birth control, but I don't want to use any type of hormone whatsoever. The pill, the Depo shot, the ring, the patch, even the IUD is out of the question at this point, and we can't stand the spermicides in condoms. I'm 38 years old and don't want to get on something that will prevent me from returning to fertility for months or even years (don't have the time!!), so the diaphragm or the cervical cap seemed the best option to me. My lovely, rather young doctor informed me that he's never even fitted anyone for a diaphragm, EVER, since there are "so many options out there today" - yeah, all of them hormonal. Has anyone ever used a diaphragm or cervical cap before, or are these two methods so outdated anyone in their childbearing years never even heard of it?! We most definitely want to try again, but don't want something with a ton of side effects or something that will tamper with my future fertility. Anyone find themselves in a similar situation where you just needed a temporary type of birth control for a few months or a year max? Any suggestions would be appreciated! Hope you ladies are all doing well, and thanks again. Hugs.
