I'm 4 weeks pp and very ready to get back to sex lol but I need a birth control that won't make me larger than I already am and is also ok for breast feeding..... Any ideas? What do you ladies use? Side effects?

I have the paragard iud and love it. No hormones, no needing to remember anything. Can cause heavier periods but is rather have that then worry about my supply or if I remembered a pill.

Other options are the mini-pill, condoms, natural family planning, you can try mirena, depo, or I've even heard implanon. Some of them do have estrogen so they can mess with your supply.
