I think there was a post about this. My 6 week check up is coming and we need to talk about BC. What are all of you ladies using? I cant count on condoms because thats how I got my little one.

I really dont want a BC thats gonna make me gain weight

I am on Micronor. It's the mini pill that contains progesterone only because I'm breastfeeding. It is very time-sensative and when I start to wean, I will have to be put on something else.

I can't say that I have full faith in this pill because that is how I got my sweet little Emma! But, it seemed to be the best choice for us for now.

Also on a progesterone only pill -- Jovilette. I would be put on a combo estrogen/progesterone pill but my blood pressure from preeclampsia is still a bit too high.

Right now, I'm using the LAM (breastfeeding method). Its temporary til dh gets fixed. ;p. Not being very safe otherwise. If it happens, oh well. Lol. But I'm feeling confident were good to go.

We're just doing PNP....but we want another anyway though we used PNP for 18 months before TTC Julianna and didn't get pregnant. As soon as we TTC Julianna, we got pregnant first cycle. We were just VERY careful doing PNP.

I am on the progestin only pill, but it is time sensitive and doesn't become effective for 2 months. I plan on using the merena, but I wanted to make sure the hormones in it wouldn't cause me problems emotionally before it was there for good The merena is super expensive, but good for 5 years. Worth it in my book.

Doug is getting snipped. But he's not in a hurry I guess to submit the paperwork and make the appt!

We're having pull and pray sex. He's messing with fire!
