  • I was on the mini-pill, which is safe for Breastfeeding. I got pregnant with #2 as soon as I went off of it so I'd say there are no risks involved with having more kids.

  • Diaphragm

    They work without hormones and have no side effects. They never caused a stroke, infertility or PID; you won't gain weight, get depressed, or lose your libido; your periods won't be affected. They have never been the subject of class action lawsuits and are instantly reversible
