Birth Control

When I first went on birth control I took the pill. Then after my DD was born, I went on the Nuva Ring. I was on it for five years when we finally decided we were ready to start TTC. It took us two years to get pregnant. My period was messed up and I was only ovulating every other month. I had to go on fertility meds just to get me regular. It was a nightmare! So now I am trying to figure out what I am going to do after this pregnancy. What are some birth control options that I can look into? I don't want anything permanent because I want to have more children. Any suggestions?

If you're going to breastfeed, you shouldn't use anything with estrogen (like nuvaring)
Things you can use while bf that aren't permanent: mini pill, IUD (Paragard is hormone free, Mirena is not), Depo aka "the shot", Implanon, diaphragm, condoms, or natural family planning

I will be using a diaphragm after my little one is born. I will not use hormonal birth control.

I have the nexplanon. Its an updated version of the implanon. They actually did away with the implanon. Its good for 3 years. You can even have it removed before the 3 years is up.

LAM (lactational amenorrhea method) and then NFP once your cycles come back. Taking Charge of Your Fertility is a great resource.

Fem Cap or diaphragm and Contragel (it is a natural spermicide approved by the EU, that our FDA won't touch.. for whatever reason, though it is safer)! : ) And chart using the OvuView app on an Android phone (if you have one) so you can use add condoms on fertile days! : )
