I'm BFing and just got AF back about two months ago. Since AF returned I thought I'd better sort out some contraception so went on the mini pill. I don't think it's agreeing with me. I've had AF for pretty much three weeks straight. I've also had three migraines since starting the mini pill and never had them before so I'm wondering if it's related.
What other options are there though? Mirena? I don't think that would agree with me at all. Condoms suck. We were supposed to be using natural fertility tracking (taking temperature and checking mucous) when I got pregnant with DS but I'm too lazy to do that properly and I don't think it would even work these days as I'm up at random times with DS which would throw my temperature out.
There's not much else is there? I guess my three options are:
1) keep taking mini pill and have AF forever - no thanks. Or maybe it will settle down eventually?
2) wean DS and go on proper pill or something else like nuvaring. I am thinking of weaning in about 6 months, but not really keen to stop sooner.
3) stop taking mini pill and just try combination of withdrawal method, tracking my cycle and avoiding fertile days, etc? I can see I will end up pregnant this way - which wouldn't be so terrible anyway.
What would you do? Do you see any other option other than what I've listed?
