I go for my 6. weeks check up tomorrow and have to decide on a BC? my ob/gyn is a guy not sure he will make a good recommendation that won't affect my milk supply so I figured I would ask around. before baby I used NuvAring and liked that. thanks
i used depo with my son, it made me gain weight tho. i tried to take the mini pill but it's so hard for me to remember! honestly i started using an app on my phone that helped me chart my cycles and just wouldn't have sex during the ovulation time and we used condoms. Other than that breastfeeding kept me from getting pregnant until she got closer to weaning.
honestly...nothing, I have never ovulated while nursing so I'm not too concerned about it. I know my body well enough and I know how to track cm so like I just said I'm not too concerned at the moment :) when my lo does get closer to weaning we will just switch to condoms
I got my 2nd para guard today! It was my 6 week post partum check up! I had it for 4 years and loved it, plus there isn't the hormones like Mirena and other birth controls (which I can't have because I have an allergic reaction)! I got it after I had my first daughter, got it removed and 3 months later I was pregnant with my baby girl! I would recomend it to anyone who isn't looking for birth control as a way to have less periods or lighter periods and things like that. If you want a BC that just has the side effects of not having more babies for a while its awesome!
