We've been asked by the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) to find out all about your last pregnancy and discussions around and about contraception.

Please answer this survey - it should only take a few minutes.

It's open to all UK MNers who have been pregnant and had a baby in the last 3 years. We'd like you to think about your most recent pregnancy when answering this survey as we want it to be as up to date as possible.

Everyone who completes the survey and adds their details at the end will be entered into a prize draw where one person will win a £250 John Lewis voucher.

Thanks and good luck

I don't remember anyone ever mentioning contraception to me after DS was born - perhaps because it says "Catholic" on my notes??

And grin at bungalows form of contraception

Marrow - sorry about that - you could add it in the "why" box and I will have a fiddle with your data a bit. Anyway may have missed you as I am closing this off soon.

thanks for all the responses so far...

I started this but can't complete as there's no option for sterilisation on Q9.

FaintingGoat Thu 06-Sep-12 21:04:46

Done. Almost every healhcare professional I saw asked me about contraception!

I also thought that bf as a sole method of contraception was unreliable, but I can't remember if this was suggested to me by someone else or if I just thought it myself.

Done! Used contraceptives until my cycles returned then pretty much started work on DC2 (now 15 weeks)!

LittleWhiteWolf Thu 06-Sep-12 18:00:37

done. i was offered a lot of different types of contraception by every HCP i saw!

ifherbumwereabungalow Thu 06-Sep-12 16:12:45

Done, and am currently using husband's personality as main contraceptive method.

Done, also agree on the lack of 'just too bloody knackered' , or ''DH on the computer until midnight' as contraceptive options! And I wish they'd stop pushing breast feeding as a contraceptive so much, one unexpected pregnancy and subsequent miscarriage later despite DS being surgically attached to my boobs for the first six months!

ShoeJunkie Thu 06-Sep-12 13:30:26

Done! smile

fluffywhitekittens Thu 06-Sep-12 13:27:58

giraffe I was 40 when DD was born so I don't think it's an age thing!

Done. I answered based on my successful pregnancy with ds2.
I had a miscarriage at 11weeks into a completely unexpected pregnancy (GP and midwife both fully aware of this aspect of it) earlier this year, no one has discussed or even suggested contraception to me since then. In fact there's been no follow up from any medical professional at all, which I believe is not unusual, but maybe that's a topic for a different survey.

AndFanjoWasHisNameO Wed 05-Sep-12 23:30:46

Done - my midwife at my last booking in appointment was quite put out that I didn't want to be sterilised at the same time as my c section. She's going to be made up to see me yet again early next year then, the old trout grin

with you on the box ticking- after a 3rd degree tear that required over an hour in theatre to repair, I didn't need to discuss contraception before I left hospital with my newborn, thanks, surely it could wait? Some general sensitivity would be nice- surely my notes say what my delivery was like, so no, GP I don't want a coil fitted when the idea of any medical professional going anywhere near my vagina still makes me shudder and I'm still having flashbacks to the birth of my DS 20 months on sad hmm angry
