So in the mean time we need some form of BC. I was pretty sure that I wanted the mini pill. I know it is not the most effective birth control, but I figured combined with BFing it would keep me safe for a little while at least.
My midwife and nurse were 100% against it. They both tried to talk me into IUDs.
First the Mirena since it last 5 years, which is all I really need birth control for. But I've already had a Mirena and hated it. But they tried to convince me that it's changed since I first had it and it is very unlikely that the problems I has the first time will happen again.
Then they tried to convince me to do paragaurd, but my insurance won't pay for it 100%. So I would have to go to the health department to get it placed.
But it is still an IUD and they scare me. I don't trust them. Other than getting an ultrasound there is no way to tell that it is staying in the right place and working properly.
My midwife spent an hour trying to talk me into it. Finally I convinced her to write me an RX forthr mini pill, but I had to promise to consider other options.
On the way out the door I saw a pamphlet for the Implanon. Even though it only lasts 3 years I think I like the idea of it more. My midwife is checking with my insurance company to see if it is covered now.
Why didn't she tell me about it before?
Have any of you had any luck with it?
