What is everyone planning on using for contraception after giving birth and will you be breastfeeding?

Just joining because I'm interested in answers too, I've started thinking about this and don't have a clue!

I used a baby permanently in my arms or in our bed Grin

I went on the Mini pill after my first (BF so couldn't go in combined pill ) but struggled to remember to take it on time with smaller window to take and newborn to look after so we had a long stretch on condoms before ttc no.2

The MN contraception topic is over here:

There are probably not many answers in a pregnancy topic - for fairly obvious reasons!

I had the arm implant Implanon which I really liked, had hardly any periods, didn't feel like it affected my moods, safe for BF but it did contribute to me gaining weight which dropped as soon as I had it removed...

I'm planning on the coil but to be honest am not really sure when we would manage to have sex ever again anyway

We usually use condoms while my hormones settle then I go back on the mini pill. Dh is getting the snip this time (dc5) so we'll probably just use condoms until he gets the all clear.
