Pre kids I was on the mini pill for many years and it was great.
I've been off it for nearly 6 years either pregnant to ttc, but now need to look at some options again.
We have just been using condoms with a little unprotected when af is nearly due.
I'm kind of scared about going back to hormonal birth control & had heard some stories about copper iuds....so I don't really know what to do either.

I have in the past used implanon which I found horrible! It sent me loopy. I have a scar inside my arm from the doctors botched attempt to remove it :-/
I have usually been on the mini-pill while breast feeding, but this last bub my hubby got the snip, so yippee for me, no more hormonal birth control.
The sexual freedom and stress free sex is awesome, which is crazy after having sex with the intent to make babies for 7 years... Now it would be our worst nightmare to fall pregnant.

ds1 was concieved using ivf so we didnt bother with contraception, it took a little while but his brother was concieved naturally.
we are currently using condoms as i am still breastfeeding and we might go for #3.
dh was going to get a vasectomy as we were only going to have 2 babies but thinking about a 3rd.
i wont go on anything hormonal as we aren't overly fertile.
