    Default Birth Control after birth.

    How long after giving birth can you start taking the pill again? My pp bleeding stopped about 2 weeks ago. My 6 week check up is in 2 weeks. But I dont wanna wait to go on it. But also dont wanna stuff up my hormones.

    They usually prescribe at your 6 week check up. Maybe see your gp in the meantime to discuss. I know people that have been given it at hospital

    You can't take the normal pill if you're breastfeeding though- you'll need the minipill

    I got my prescription after my 6 week checkup with my OB at the hospital (but ironically I couldn't buy the pill from the hospital pharmacy as it's a catholic hospital!).

    If you are going to DTD before 6 weeks make sure you are using something. I know 2 people who were pregnant by their 6 week checkup :-0
