Hi all

I'm 7 weeks post partum and breastfeeding. I have an appointment tomorrie to have a coil fitted.

I used to use the mirena abc I loved it as I had no periods, but am thinking copper might be better in a bid to stay away from hormones whilst breastfeeding.

Does anyone have any experience of contraception (especially IUDs) while breastfeeding? Did anything affect your milk levels?

Oh great!

Thanks RedKites

I'm in bed at the moment, and it won't open on my phone, but will check it during a night feed later.

Thanks again
