diaphragm, elizabeth. cheaper. just as reliable when used correctly. how tall is melinda? small, medium, big boned?


True, Karry. Or the sponge. Also, the IUD isn't safe. Not at all. There's gotta be another way.

i am not convinced that she would or could learn how to correctly use a diaphragm. and sponges are not available anywhere there.

the absolute best thing for her would be a tubal ligation. and were it not for the fact that she would be in the hospital for days (they don't have the new techniques that make it an outpatient thing here) she would do it too. and her husband agrees that it would be a good thing but for that fact. cause if she was in the hospital who would take care of the kids. (don't say it, i know... but it's unusual for a gypsy man to agree to such a thing so i can't really push it).
