Copper iud. Like the mirena but no hormones to stuff up your cycle.
I've had one twice now and it's never been painful going in. Just a bit of pressure down there.
I used the mini pill between baby 1 and 2, after baby 2 tried the mirena which sent me off my head. After over 12 hours of non stop crying followed by extreme short temper I pulled it out myself and went back on the mini pill.
unfortunately I have (last month) had a chemical pregnancy while using the mini pill correctly so hubby and I are not sure which way to go (I am still feeding our 21 month old daughter).
There is no one answer for everyone, good luck with your decision
I'm on the mini pill and will switch to pill when I stop breastfeeding.
