  • Ugh right now I'm on the Depo shot but I get back on Yasmin on the 28th THANK GOD! I HATE Progestin only birth controls. They apparently screw me up really bad. I had the Mirena after my daughter was born, and it was horrible, too. I love Yasmin, though.

  • Ouch, Gemini lol.

    Right now we count on condoms. I WOULD count on breastfeeding, but my son doesn't nurse often enough for me to feel safe doing that (yes it IS effective if your baby nurses frequently enough and you are less than 6 months postpartum, I swear). Once I start cycling again I will use FAM (Fertility Awareness Method). I would like to be on a pill, but it increases the chances of ectopic pregnancy... and I've already had one of those so my risk is higher.

  • I am fixed... Though, if I had known the problems it would cause, I never would have done it.

  • I couldn't have relied on breastfeeding lol. I got my regular period back about 5 weeks after I had her. I won't trust anything but condoms next time I have a baby, because the Mirena dried my milk up (even though I hadn't been able to find any information saying that it was a possibility until AFTER that happened, plus about 100 other bad things, and I started searching for my symptoms).
