Hello I am interested in getting some advice about birth control pills. I have an almost 10 week old little girl and I just stopped breast feeding/pumping a week or so ago. I want to get on the pill immediately but I havent gotten a post partum period yet. When can I start taking the pill? Do I have to wait for AF?

Also what pill do you recommend?

Thank you

You don't have to wait for AF to show, because you can ovulate before your first post partum period. Be sure to research the risks of each type of birth control pill you are considering to be fully informed about what you'll be taking. Most BCP's carry similar risks, but in varying degrees depending on the type and dosage of synthetic hormones in them. Risks include blood clots, heart attack, stroke, depression, weight gain, decreased libido which can be permanent, breast cancer, etc. Combined oral contraceptives are also classified as Class 1 carcinogens by the World Health Organization.

Yeah I really hate the pill. I hate taking them. I just really don't want to get pregnant again anytime soon. I have had bad experiences with the shot and the IUD and my husband isn't a condom guy so I feel stuck.

Modern types of Natural Family Planning are as effective as the Pill, but without any side effects or risks. There are several different types of NFP to choose from as well, because different couples have different needs. We've never had a surprise with the Billings Ovulation Method. In one study Billings was compared with the IUD and there were more pregnancies in the IUD group. We've used it post partum too, before AF came back.
