Quoting Georgia Lamb:" Thank you for sharing that im glad you did. "
You're welcome I spent a very long time researching birth control. While you are nursing your options are
IUD (mirena or paraguard)
I personally hated mirena i gained weight like crazy and was a hormonal bitch im surprised my marriage survived it.
The paraguard is great if you dont need/want any hormones and its good for 10 years.
Implanon- good for 3 years implanted into your arm. I have no personal experience with this but havent heard near the horror stories that I have with mirena.
Mini-pill- obviously not for you
Depo- one shot every 3 months (this is what im currently on) I have had no side effects that I know of. I am maintaing my weight. Although it can cause a calcium deficiency and cause bone loss so its not recommended that anyone take it for longer than two years and my doctor told me to take a calcium supplement with it.
Condoms and natural family planning as well.
