    Default Birth control

    I think I accidentally posted this in another spot and don't know how to remove it, so I am reposting it here!
    Does anyone know how soon you can start birth control ie taking the pill after giving birth?? I don't use condoms with my husband, just something we decided we wouldn't do, but was worried about how soon after birth I can start back on the pill. Has anyone been able to start straight away? Thanks for the help.

    I asked the midwives before leaving the hospital when i could start using the pill and she told me to pretty much wait till i finished bleeding. I finished bleeding 3 weeks after birth and i started the pill straight away. However i got pregnant with DS3 while taking the pill so i just had the depo shot the other day (5 weeks post giving birth).
