    Default What was your birth control of choice after birth?

    I have been reading a lot of things about contraceptives after birth, and I'm considering the mini pill, but I have read there are AF irregularities, and I'm a tad worried because my cycle is usually very heavy (sorry, tmi) and gets very bad very quickly. Depo is out of the questions because I tried it, my period continued for 6 months constantly after that shot, was not pleasant. What was your choice and experience?

    My contraception was a screaming non-sleeping newborn lol! Once that settled down I went on the same pill I was on before pregnancy.

    I went on the mini pill after DS1 and it made me angry/hormonal and have no libido so after months of that I stopped having it and we just used condoms which were awful and painful (for me).

    So this time im not sure what I will dp either.

    Oh and I didn't get my period whilst on the mini pill or after at all until DS1 was 10 months.

    If that is the case, better to consult your trusted ob before taking any mini pill. Our body cannot tolerate all kinds of pill so to give you further advices and instructions talk to her.

    We used condoms. I was breastfeeding and we wanted to TTC approx 12 months after DS was born so we didn't want to use anything hormonal.

    I got the implanon rod & so far it has been really good for me. I could still breastfeed, had no side effects & no pregnancy scares
