Hi Ladies

In a nut shell....need to pick your brains for ideas of contraception that isn't condoms, the pill, the coil, the injection, the implant or withdrawal method!

OH and I have two DCs already and sadly lost a third at 17 weeks pregnant in January this year. We recently agreed that we'd "see what happens" about trying again. ..ie not ovulation charting etc and desperately trying to get pg again but just let nature do it's thing and if it happens it happens kinda thing.

The prob is this, im still v scared about the thgt of getting pg again because of what happened last time as still dealing with that. But also have landed my dream job to start in a month which i feel i need to put a lot of effort in to and am going on a big family hol before the end of the year.

Since the loss of our little baby we just used the wd method for a while until we decided to kinda let lose last month . I don't want to go back on the pill as I dont feel myself on it and don't wanna mess up my system again which also discounts injection and implant. Hubby wont use condoms and cant have coil as previously had an ectopic. And wd is crap....a job half done if you ask me!

Just wondered what other options are available that may allow us to defer actively trying til next year without messing up my system with chemicals?

Thanks!

Past ectopic isn't a contraindication for coil (guideline says no restriction on use) - if you were to become pregnant with a coil then that pregnancy is more likely to be ectopic, but the absolute risk is very very low, because it's so effective... So I'd go with a Mirena for its benefits over a copper coil.

Uk medical eligibility for contraception guideline here (but it's very dry!): http://www.fsrh.org/pdfs/UKMEC2009.pdf
