Not sure where to post this.. ive posted something similar before in relationships but thats because the lack of sex was affecting our relationship.. anyway heres the story..
When i was 4 weeks post partum i had a stroke. It was a type of stroke you can get through pregnancy/postpartum. I now have a crippling fear of getting pregnant again. We have only had proper intercourse once since having our baby (nearly 8 months ago) and since then i have done about 10 pregnancy test and also a pregnancy blood test at doctors, all negative of course but im still constantly paranoid im pregnant. Also i cant be only any contraception atm because of a condition i have (such a long story). How will i ever get over this fear of accidently getting pregnant.
We absolutely want no more children now as we already have two. We have spoken to doctor's about him having a vasectomy but they're not keen as hes only 25.
