i am going to my post natal tommorow and need to sort out my contraception. am breastfeeding and i know this narrows my options. dont want the mini pill as i am rubbish at remembering to take it and this is how dd2 came about. any ideas or recomendations would be appreciated
I have taken the mini pill and have stopped as I have been absoultely pants at taking it. My GP wont give me the implant or the injection- he says there needs to be more research done on both. the only other option is the coil...not keen on that one at all. will watch this thread to see if any better advice comes out!
There is a mini pill that is supposedly suitable while breastfeeding (cerazette), you have a 12 hour window, rather than the 2 hour one I think you get with standard mini pill
However, there are quite a few disparaging comments on here about it and personally I blame it for my dramatic reduction in milk supply! This is purely anecdotal of course, but I've come off it now and just using condoms for now.
ah right, not much help for you then. I kept it on the microwave so I never forgot!
I had mirena coil before DD - it worked very well for me, no bleeding whatsoever. Have got friends who have had constant bleeding on this though (ie for months and months). So yes - there's another mixed report for you
