just wanted to check it out over here but wasnt sure what this one is all about. I am fully breastfeeding and my son is 7wks old. I have started the mini pill but have to admit I havent been good at taking it. I dont want to get pregnant for at least a yr and we havent decided if we are having any more children. Any information about this forum would be appreciated am I in the right place for what I am wanting? Is there a way to not get pregnant for a specific time frame while not worring about bc pills or condums?
thanks,
sue

There certainly is. It's called Natural Family Planning. Basically, you can take a course (online, in person, home study) that teaches you how to monitor your fertility each day. You abstain on days with fertile signs, and can enjoy days without condoms when you have infertile signs - in accordance with the guidelines of whichever form of NFP you choose to learn. Effectiveness is 99% with proper training and following the rules. It works even if you don't have your cycles back, because it's possible to ovulate before your first period.

There is also breastfeeding infertility that leaves only a 2% chance of pregnancy when certain guidelines are met, but the hormones from the mini-pill will have already disrupted that natural state of infertility for you. You wouldn't be able to rely on breastfeeding alone even if you stopped the pills now.

If you have some time, read through the Resource and FAQ Stickies on this forum. That will explain some more about it all!
