If you just had a baby.......

Are you on birth control, using protection or is hubby just pulling out? Im getting a little nervouse even though the pull out method has worke4d for us 7 yrs now. But 5 weeks after giving birth I finally stopped bleeding and then we had sex 2 weeks after that. Does this long period of bleeding work just like a normal period? Cause normally I ovulate between cd 12-16.

  • I'm on birth control until my DH can get a vasectomy. I'm forbidden to have any more kids from my cardiologist. :[

  • We don't use anything. When my cycle eventually comes back (14 mo and counting..) we'll do NFP, but I'm not terribly fertile while nursing.

  • Don't get an IUD, they are dangerous. We use pull-out and it has worked for us for years. Don't bash me I am just giving my BC method.

  • I have the paraguard IUD I refused to have sex without BC and my hubby didn't want me to get my tubes tied.

  • Hon do yourself a favor and get an IUD. I got the Mirena after my oldest son and then again after the baby. I too didn't feel comfortable having sex without it and I'm far too busy to think about a pill each day.

  • From the Mirena website: A rare life-threatening infection like sepsis may occur within the first few days after Mirena is placed. ...Embedment is when Mirena attaches to the uterine wall. If embedment occurs, Mirena may no longer prevent pregnancy and you may need surgery to have it removed...Perforation. Mirena may go through (perforate) the uterine wall. If your uterus is perforated It may move outside the uterus and can cause scarring, infection or damage to other organs. Surgery may be needed to have Mirena removed.... ....I value my life.
