I am not new to JM but i am new to this board. I normally post in the OCT 08 PR, Attachment Parenting, and the PAL PR.
Heres my Birth control story. When i first got married i got on the pill.. was on the pill for less than a year then started TTC our first... got pregnant a few months later, and gave birth to our first DD, Layla, March 29th 2006. After that i went on the mini pill until i finished BFing her and wentback on the regular BCP.. Then we started TTC our second, got pregnant, lost that sweet baby at 11w2d. waited a few months TTC again and got pregnant with our second DD, Eva who was born Oct 18th 08. Since then ive been battling with what i wanted to do with my body.. I started reading up on different forms of BC and realized that most of them have the potential to be an abortant .. having lost a baby i knew that even if i didnt know i was pregnant and lost a fertalized egg i felt convicted of that. That was our baby and id want to give it a chance no matter what.
So since i am still BFing Eva i started on the depo shot since it stops your ovulation all together.. BUT i knew that i did NOT want to be on it long term. So as of August 6th i am BC free.. I am still BFing so right now my DH and i are using barrier methods until my period returns to normal (which could be a while!) Our long trem plan is to use the FAM method, with condoms or a spermacide during my fertile period..
So i am excited to be joining this board, and excited to be hormone free!
