Now, i know this forum is for posting messages about trying to conceive and whatnot, however, I am already pregnant, in fact, due in a month and i was just wondering if you mommies and help me decide which is the best method to use after you give birth! Just a little background on me, I am 18 and this is my first baby! My mother said that the UID would be best, but someone else told me that the patch would do just fine.. Any other opinions or stories about which BC methods are best or better???

Are you planning on breastfeeding? If you aren't, I would suggest the pill or the patch. If you are, I would suggest just using condoms. I was lucky enough not to even see my period for 8 months after Ry because I was breastfeeding. But that doesn't mean I couldn't have gotten pregnant.

Hi and congratulations. I would recommend something that's easy to take or you don't have to think about very often (maybe the patch or condoms). I say this b/c when my dd was born I was constantly forgetting to take my pill (I had been on it for 4 yrs and had never missed one). You are so busy as a new mom that the pill might be hard to remember and you probably don't want another right away. Wishing you a safe and healthy delivery and baby! Jamie

Have you been on any types of BC before? If you are planning on breastfeeding, it limits your options for different types. Ask your doctor what your options will be. I agree that remembering to take BC pills can be difficult. If you are breastfeeding and you want to take pills, you will be on the pop (progesterone only pills) and with those its even more important to take them at the same time every day.

Hi There! Congrats on your pregnancy! An IUD can be hormonal or nonhormonal, so you can use it if you are breast or bottle feeding and you dont even have to remember to do anything! BUT....if you arent married or dont have a bf that is 200% faithful dont get an IUD. If you are exposed to an STD while you have an IUD in it can cause sterility.

Good luck!

Erin
