  • After about 2 months you can start using progesterone like deprovera or Mirena (iud) . If you choose to use a birth control pill like yaz, then you should wait until the baby is at least six months old and eating solids.

  • There is also a mini pill that can be taken while BFing.

  • Pills differ , In cases of whats in them etc,

    I would talk to your doctor about it, since you will be talking to him about it soon anyway,
    and just make sure everything is alright for you to do this while BF,

    its not biggy but id still ask,

  • for the 1st 3 months you cant take one with estrogin...... the other ones are fine, maybe get an iud.... you can bf with that in... most people find it impossible to want sex for those first 3 months, painful (even with c sections!) so i just took the first 3 monts off the pill...
