Birth control after baby?

Postby Luvmymunchkin » Sun May 03, 2015 9:00 pm

Hi ladies! Having 6 week checkup this week and I am not sure about birth control?! I was on the pill for years and never had a problem,off it since 2012 but I hate the thoughts of going back to it!!it kind of seems the easier option though? I wouldn't trust condoms to just use them. I wouldn't like the injection or patch ideas either so besides pill all I know is the implant or coil?
Has anyone had implant or coil?any problems or side effects with them ye found?i just want to have my mind made up before I go in. Its very much left all to the women as usual!! Couldn't imagine men doing all our worrying and googling and stressing haha ;-D

Yes I had the implant in for 3 years and never had a problem with it I decided to try the mirena coil last year and that was fine I came off it 3 months ago and am 2 months pregnant now so if u would like to have another baby in time your body regulates straight after coil again and it also lasts 5 years I'd recommend the mirena coil

Congrats corkgirl that's great to hear!ya I was leaning more towards the coil than implant,does it hurt getting it? Is it just done at the gp I presume?maybe in a few years we would like another baby but at the moment our hands are full :-D

Thanks luv my munchkin you feel it a small bit uncomfortable but not as bad as I thought and getting it out was painless for me ya I can see you have your hands full ha ha but in another few years you might like another u can forget about it once it's on for 5 years

Thanks girls I am still not sure,think I will get the pill for a while then decide. I am soo indecisive about everything I'm a disaster ;-D good to know that it won't affect fertility anyway, you never know when you might want another baby but it definitely will be a few years for me!

I went back on the pill after I had my lo and I find it great I personally didn't like that thought of the coil or implant it just wouldn't have suited me.
