Not hormones: You can use local methods condoms, diaphragm, if u do not want any more kids, office sterilzation, is easier and safer than laparoscopic tubal coagulation. I currently do both adiana and essure in the offcie. If you have a c-section, the tubes can be tied at that time. But as you know tubal methods are permanent, but with your condition, another pregnancy could be risky.
