There's a video online about it. You just fold into quarters, insert an wait. DTD and that's it. I have used for 21 months this time around.

Re: Birth control while breastfeeding?

I'm using the mini pill and EBF. I gained weight on the combination pill but no problems so far with supply and I've lost 30 pounds.

I talked to my Dr about an IUD but he said that's more of a longer term solution like 2-3+ years.

Re: Birth control while breastfeeding?

I'm trying to decide the same thing. I'm allergic to condoms (well, the spermicide. But I can't find any without it!) so I am thinking about the Paragard. I'm frightened about it migrating somewhere else in my body or perforating my uterus though and it's expensive and my insurance won't cover it. I won't do the minipill either because I don't do well with hormone stuff (weight gain, acne, irritability and supply issues) Ugh, such a hard choice!

I use a combo of the Fertility Awareness Method and condoms. I am also allergic to spermacide but we seem to be able to find them without it.
