I just want to know what worked for some women after you had your baby? I am looking around for birth control but want to know other opinions on different brands, methods, etc.Thank youI’m 33 and my husband and aren’t having anymore. This our first (and last) together (he has 2 other teens) so I’m trying to get a head start by getting information.Yes. I plan to breastfeed for 6 months.

I take Yaz birth control. I started it about 7 weeks after my son was born. It took about a month of spotting before my body got used to it. I have been on it for over 8 months now and I like it. It also cleared up my complexion and helped with my moodiness.

Abstinence. . .JK!I am currently on the Pill, not sure of the name, but it is safe to use when breastfeeding. We are planning on having my husband"fixed"in the near future.

Abstinence until I got the Mirena implant. (not that I felt like having sex right after giving birth!) I have had it for almost a year now and I really like it. My periods are very light and I have minimal cramping. I like that it’s very effective and foolproof because you don’t have to remember to take the pill or switch the patch or anything. Downside is it cost $500 and my insurance didn’t cover it.

Mirena! I love it. Its an IUD you have placed and it is good for 5 years but you can take it out anytime if you decide to get pregnant again. I hate taking pills. This way I do not have to worry or remember or go to the pharmacy =0) And my insurance covered it!
