Hi girls, has anyone given it any thought? Dh hates condoms and I don't want to mess with my hormones (bcp) and I'm afraid of inserting an IUD because of the many side effects I've heard of...any ideas regarding the matter ladies?

Im about to start my birth control in a week and a half. Im b___stfeeding so I have very few choices as to what I can take and my boyfriend hates condoms as well (so do I) :-). They have a pill that is very safe and very effective while b___stfeeding that you can start 3 weeks after giving birth so that's what Im going to try. Once you're done b___stfeeding you have to change to something else cause it's not really all that effective when not b___stfeeding. Just do some research and talk to your husband before making any decisions.

But I would highly reccommend not inserting anything and definitely not getting the shot cause you cant reverse it for 3 months if you get any side effects. ya know??

Thanks Jennifer, you are right I do need to do some research, explore all our options. I don't live in the US so I don't know if this milder version of the pill is available here, can you give me a brand name (and I'll also ask my doctor)? Good point about the shot, never thought how annoying it would be to put up with side-effects for 3 months!!!

im pretty sure a friend told me you can take the mini pill, its not the combined pill and is safe to take while b___stfeeding, although im sure the first few months s_x will be the last thing on your mind or what your poor sore v____a wants

Yikes the thought of s_x after what poor v____a is going to go through is very remote but I definitely don't want to have another baby back to back...I'm still not there but mom, sisters, sil, mil are all warning me...

Whats a Dh?

DH stands for Dear/Darling husband...on some occasions it can stand for dumb/dorky/delinquent (or whatever you can come up with)...husband ;)

My husband is getting the snip! We have decided 2 children are plenty and I've been through enough and have been on birth control for over 10 years prior.
