I just had my son 4 weeks ago and at my 6 week check we will be talking about Birth COntrol.
I dont want anything thats going to make me gain weight, what do you suggest I do?
Condoms do not work, thats how I have my son, lol.
I am iffy on hormonal methods as well due to weight gain, mood swings, etc. So I'm thinking barrier methods might be your best bet. If you don't like condoms have you ever thought about the Diaphragmn?
The "best" BC is different from each person. I was on the pill, but I engaged in heavy drinking these past two months and I forgot to take my medication. I ended up pregnant. The pill, though it may be 99% effective, was not the right birth control method for me.
Planned Parenthood has a good quiz that might help you in deciding what method works best for you.
I'm BFing and I just started Camila(mini-pill). So far I'm still loosing weight and I am sensitive to BC's. The only one I ever liked was the ring, but I can't use it while BFing cause of the estrogen. Have you considered the mini-pill? Really, that, the shot and an IUD are the only estrogen free BC's.
