  • I had Implanon and had it removed yesterday. It my second "tour" with Implanon, had it removed because of period problems.

  • Condoms. The only hormonal birth control I'm willing to do is the pill. The hormones in the combo pill are likely to impact supply, and I don't trust myself to take the mini-pill correctly. So we just stick with condoms.

  • I am on the Mirena and have been for three weeks... My daughter is two almost three months old... I only got on it bc i am nursing and cant get on anything else without it decreasing my milk supply... I have noticed a change in my breast feeling full though, so i dont know whats going on. And i have had slight mood swings so that may have to do with it too... if you can i would advise anyone to just learn your cycle and use condoms when your ovulating... i cant do that bc my cycle is ccccrrrraaazzzyyyyy!! well good luck and the mirena is what the dr told me to get while nursing!!!

  • I got a depo shot before I left the hospital. It hasn't affected my supply at all.

    DH is getting a vasectomy.
