What kind of birth control are all the mommies using?



We have not really been using any birth control besides condoms and we are not always that great at using those. My dr did prescribe me the mini pill but I'm just not a huge fan of the birth control pill so I haven't been taking it. We do want another one but I really do want to wait a while to get pregnant again so we are going to try to be more consistent with the condoms. I am breastfeeding so hopefully that is helping a little bit.

Well I am not a fan of the b/c pill either, I know so many accidental pregnancies that happened with it! I never got pregnant on it but I did mess up my cycle once by stopping in the middle of a pack and had a horrible bleed out that required me to go to the hospital.

Before that I used the Depo-shot, it was very effective but made me gain alot of weight, feel miserable and depressed.

Condoms are okay, DH doesn't mind using them but they can be a bit of a hassle -I considered only using condoms after my LO is born but I don't know now - I don't really want to have another baby right away.

I am considering getting an IUD, I prefer the methods of birth control you don't have to worry about every day, plus it's one of the most effective methods out there and something I wouldn't have to replace for years.

I know it's not the most reliable for some but I just breastfed for a year+ I didn't get AF until Jax's first b-day. By then we were ready to TTC again. I'm not sure what we will do after this baby is born since I don't know if we're done or not...

DH got snipped a few weeks ago so right now we are using condoms until he has the all clear.

When I'm not pregnant, to achieve or to avoid pregnancy, we use the Creighton Model of Natural Family Planning. It's modern and over 98% effective. It's not the old calendar rhythm method that's only 80% effective. We've never had an unplanned pregnancy.

We have such a hard time getting pregnant that we don't use anything. I've been pregnant 3 times in 18 years, all on purpose.

None right now (obviously)...i'm actually not sure what we'll do after we stop TTCing - with the Factor II diagnosis i can no longer take any type of estrogen birth control (pills, depo shot, etc)...i don't like IUDs...not sure husband will want to be snipped...leaving condoms i guess, not sure what else option-wise.

There's always natural family planning. The modern methods- Creighton, Billings, and Sympto-Thermal all have over 98% effective rate at avoiding pregnancy, comparable to artificial methods. Just a thought.

We are NTNP/lazily TTC right now, but I'm not sure what we'll do after we are done having kids. Because of my clotting disorder (also Factor II), I won't be able to do hormonal birth control, and I am really not a fan of the idea of IUDs. I have really irregular and long cycles, so NFP for avoiding pregnancy would be tough. I'm guessing we'll use condoms or else just take our chances, knowing that we had such a hard time conceiving Eleanor.

We are NTNP. I can't stand birth control and Dh hates condoms. It took us 3 years to get Cody. We want another baby so we will see what happens.

We are starting TTC this month (September 1st is "go time" Lol). But we had been using LAM (lactation amenorrhea method) while Kieran was nursing exclusively. Once he started on foods, I was just a little more careful and we used condoms ocassionally, if my body was showing signs of possible ovulation. As it stands, I have only ovulated once and not even gotten a real period since before I was preggo with Kieran. So, LAM was rather effective for us.

If I knew we were not going to TTC for a while or were possibly done, I would do the copper IUD. I had it once before and had no complaints with it. So that will be our plan of action if we are considering stopping after the next one. But it isn't worth getting if you are only waiting til the baby is one or something. Which is why I didn't get it this time around. We get pregnant pretty easily, so we are fairly careful.

I just wanted to chime in here... I suffered from infertility and partially breastfeeding my first i did not have a period for nine months.

SOOOOOO after Beau was born and he was EBF I was very surpised to become pregnant with Tessa without a PPAF... After Tessa I at least had two periods before becoming pregnant with baby.

As for after baby I have no flipping clue.
