My daughter turned 1 last month! She was conceived through IVF as we were unable to conceive without assistance due to both my own fertility issues and my husbands.
Given our existing 'issues' as well as the fact that I have been breastfeeding and had not had a period since having had our daughter, we hadn't really thought too deeply about contraception, instead taking a "if nature takes it's course we'll be totally surprised but overwhelmed with another" attitude.
But alas, after 9 months of pregnancy and one year of parenthood, my period has 'returned' (it was never regular to begin with) and caused us to reconsider. Though my head tells me the most sensible thing to do is go on birth control (despite the unlikely-hood of conception), my heart is confused, not entirely "ready" for another, but not comfortable with the idea of stopping the tiny chance of it happening either?
We were very lucky with our IVF journey, conceiving first round, but it still felt like forever and was a very emotional experience. Has any one else been confused about this decision after going through fertility treatment for their first? What decision did you come to and how? Thoughts?
