What bc are you using while breastfeeding?

I hope hope hope to be successful at breastfeeding on demand exclusively for 6 months... (due in Jan with my first), but want to decide on another bc option in case that doesn't happen... what are you using? What worked & didn't?

Thanks.

I get my first PPAF at 4 months even though I exclusively breastfeed. We use condoms.

Re: What bc are you using while breastfeeding?

DD is almost 3 months and we EBF (constantly lol) I got the shot. My DH is deployed and we didn't want another baby right now, esp an R&Rbaby. So I got one shot, when he comes home I'm thinking the nuva ring.

Re: What bc are you using while breastfeeding?

EBF all of my boys for between 14-18mo.... and gave them solids around 10mo-12mo..... i got PP AF after DS1 at the 12/13mo mark.... After DS2 i never got it back - we caught the first cycle at roughly 9mo PP ..... Having babies 18mo apart was HARD on me so this time around I had a copper IUD placed at my 8wk pp check up. Love it. Never had a negative side effect.... EBF DS3 until around 14mo.

I was using the mini pill after my first, and once my cycles returned it seemed like I was spotting constantly. After the second baby, I opted for Mirena and I've been happy with it so far. Neither have affected breastfeeding at all.

Copper IUD, I don't want to have a moment of weakness and have an oopsies. I want more kids (I have 2 DD's) and I plan on waiting 8 years to have more because I want 2 and 2. Figured wirh nursing and getting off insurance next month it's the only way. I had mirena and that made me gain weight like CRAZY so no hormones this time

Leaning toward a copper iud this time until DH can get in to get his vasectomy (we are very done) unless he can get in really soon after I have this baby.

Using the mini-pill and so far so good! No issues with breastfeeding, either.
