So my girl and I are getting serious, and I'm starting to worry about condoms. Not only do they numb, but they aren't reliable enough. I'm not going to let her get on the pill or take any other hormone treatment, I like her how she is thanks. No cervical caps or female condoms either, we'd like something we don't have to worry about. Short of getting our tubes tied, it seems that the only option is an IUD. I've been looking into them a bit, but they are mostly suggested for women who have already had a baby. I'm going to assume that this is because they have a slight risk of giving the girl PID, which can ruin her chances of having a kid later. Anyone know if that's correct? Also, anyone have any first-hand experience with these things? Supposedly they are over 99% effective, but is that enough? 99% means we'd have babies within a year for sure (Figure having sex every night and you'd reach that 1 in 100 awfully fast). Is there another option that we should be looking at? btw: we don't want this because we aren't ready for kids. We want this because we have both decided we don't want kids (at least not right now). Her mom went through hell to birth her, and shes afraid that she wouldn't be able to take having a child.
