What is suitable? Really can't get pregnant in the near future (probably never again :( ) looking at doubling up condoms +? as I'm less likely to slip up Blush

I can't have coil & dont react well to hormones so am reluctant over long lasting hormones (unless any are the same as a previous pill & I know how I'd react?)

Why can't you have a coil?

We used condoms. They did not work. I had a coil fitted.

Natural family planning, alongside coil and condoms became necessary in this house.

They couldn't fit it last time as I went into shock. No chance of doing it without a GA now as they won't get near me

Can you not use the previous pill?

I had mine fitted under a GA. I don't know if I'd have managed it while awake. I'm not great with hormones but took Loestrin 20 for years with no problems. No other pill suited.

A vasectomy?

Can't take other pill whilebreastfeeding.

Am hoping that we can have another baby but such a long shot at the moment. So v wary of doing anything permanent.

What about the patch or nuva ring? the hormone levels are really low from what I have read.
