what birth control do you as a breast feeding mom use?

Posted by   + Show Post

I go for my 6. weeks check up tomorrow and have to decide on a BC? my ob/gyn is a guy not sure he will make a good recommendation that won't affect my milk supply so I figured I would ask around. before baby I used NuvAring and liked that. thanks

When I need to, we use condoms. Not everyone's favorite but I hate how hormonal BC makes me feel.

I'm going in feb for mine. My dr won't put in an IUD until your at least 12 wks pp. they like to make 100% sure your uterus is back to normal size cause if not it can move and cause problems.

I got my 2nd para guard today! It was my 6 week post partum check up! I had it for 4 years and loved it, plus there isn't the hormones like Mirena and other birth controls (which I can't have because I have an allergic reaction)! I got it after I had my first daughter, got it removed and 3 months later I was pregnant with my baby girl! I would recomend it to anyone who isn't looking for birth control as a way to have less periods or lighter periods and things like that. If you want a BC that just has the side effects of not having more babies for a while its awesome!

I take the mini pill. I set an alarm on my phone to remind me to take it.

I would not get mirena if I were u. I had it for a year and had the worst time with it. I was always bleeding, had horrible pain all the time and had really bad smelly discharge. I got it taken out after a year. Now every one is different but I have herd of lost of wonem having these same problems.
That is my input.

I used ecological breastfeeding, and then natural family planning. I wouldn't use any form of hormonal birth control.

This is what we do.
