Hey ladies.. I'm currently pregnant and due in February. Me and my DH have never used birth control other than condoms before this baby and so I was never on the pill or anything. I am wondering after this baby, what would be the best form of birth control? Nothing drastic, I want to be able to have another baby at some point, I'm just not sure if that will be in 2 years or 4 years, or what. But I'm afraid I will forget about the pill sense it's daily.. I'm already bad at remembering my prenatal vitamins. Any suggestions?
We like the Billings Ovulation Method after having a baby, because there are no hormones to mess with my milk supply and it's 99% effective, even before your cycles come back. It's necessary to learn from a teacher though, but then you can also use it for trying to conceive when you're ready.
I have the paragard iud and I love it!!!! It lasts 10 years so you can decide when to have it removed to become pregnant. Its as effective as a tubal ligation and is hormone free. periods may be heavier and longer the first few months but its a small price to pay for peace of mind.
