I had my PP appointment today and after waiting an hour and a half I finally got seen. I am down to 141 which is six lbs away from my pre-pregnancy weight and I got a date of Feb 13th for my tubal ligation (yay!). Between now and then my dr put me on the mini pill since I am EBF.

The military hospital won't do your tubal ligation right after baby. They make you wait until at least 6 weeks after. Its done with robotics at the hospital I'm getting it done at. Mydr said I should be home within 4 hrs of the procedure. Thanks :)

Thanks. I had Mirena in for almost 5 yrs after DD#3 and I loved it. When DH and I decided to have another baby I had it removed and within the first week of trying I was pregnant. Love that it didn't affect my fertility but while on it I didn't get a visit from aunt flo. Best BC ever!! Lol. Yeah, it takes 48 hrs for the mini pill to work, i am allergic to latex and we haven't had sex since my 10 week appointment in April so I'm a little upset that we have to wait two more days. Lol

What is the pill called? I plan on getting a minipill too, but so far the only bc pills I know of are combination pills. I've never actually heard of any pops.

It's called Nor-QD. My dr prescribed it because of the fact that I am EBF and BC pills that contain estrogen affect your supply. I'm only going to be on it until March 13 (a month after my tubal).

Okay. I plan on taking it for a while because I'm afraid to get nexplanon without checking to see if the hormones will affect me negatively first. I'm breastfeeding as well. I might just get depo provera since I've never had the experience of taking a birth control pill before.

You can take it long term. I'm just not because I'm getting my tubes tied. They say not to take any BC with hormones in it until baby is 6 months old if you are breastfeeding because it will diminish your supply. The only thing with taking the pill is that you have to make sure you take it at the same time every day. It only takes 48 hrs to start working while deprovera takes longer

I got pregnant around the time I got depo provera. Most women don't have supply issues with progestin, but some do. I got depo while I was breastfeeding but like I said that's when I got pregnant so I'm not sure if the side effects I had were pregnancy or shot related. Good luck with your tubal

Yeah. You can always ask your dr what they think. Thanks. My dr said I should be home within 4 hrs of the procedure and that recovery is pretty much the same as pp recovery.
