Now that many of us are getting to the point of getting back to DTD. I'm wondering,
What everyone is going to be doing for Birth Control?

This has been something I've been deeply pondering. We want to wait to TTC for 6-9 months. DH refuses to wear condoms. I hate the pill and am horrible about taking it daily. I just don't know.

I loved my implanon but that was a three year birth control option and that's way too long!

I'm doing the pill, need to go get it from the pharmacy tomorrow. It's something with a N.... I don't remember exactly. Lol
Until that kicks in (midwife said about 2 weeks) we're just using condoms

I think I'm going to try the IUD. I really need to do some reading on that and decide before my 6 week appointment.

I first thought I would do an IUD but after looking into it, it doesn't seem like I want since a lot of people get heavy periods and cramps while having one and I already have enough of that with my regular periods.
We'll just use NFP and condoms after my cycles return but hopefully they won't return for a while since I am BFing (with my daughter, they didn't return until like 14 or 15 months). As for something permanent, we might do something after I turn 40, but that's not for a while.

For now, just EBF. Once AF returns we will either TTC or NFP.

I think we're going to go with depo again. I really liked it after Marlowe - particularly since I can breastfeed on it and I don't have to remember to take anything. This is important since most days I can't even remember to put deodorant on, which is clearly much less important than preventing conception. I'm not entirely sure when - but I think we'll also be planning the big V for my DH in the near future.

Really? I thought I had heard it can make your periods lighter or even stop them. Are there different kinds? I really need to do some research.

There are a few different kinds.
Non hormonal and there's a hormonal variety.
The non hormonal can make your periods worse.

Thanks, Lucy! Do you know how hard it is to get a three year old to sit still long enough for a picture with her newborn sister? This is like a miracle on film.

so far we are doing the before said pull and pray lol never heard it called that but i will probably always call it that now and sometimes we use condoms if its getting around time for ovulation we also have contoceptive gell that we use sometimes just to be on the safe side.
