I have a question about birth control....I just had my first baby, I am 28 and have never been on birth control, we tried to concieve for 7 years before we had this baby. I could not get pregnant because I have diabetes, I found out a couple of months before I got pregnant.
So....My doctor recommended Mirena...do any of you use that and what do you think..are there any problems with it, and were you able to easily get pregnant after having it removed. Also, I am breastfeeding, do any of you know if it would diminish my milk supply?
Just wanted opinions from some of you ladies with personal experience with it.

Hi there!! Welcome to The Mommy Lounge. Even if it's just for a question. I actually had the Mirena for 3 years and I loved it!! I had no problems getting pregnant after they took it out. I had it taken out in January, I waited till AF was regular, which was about 3 months, we started TTC immediately and BOOM, I was pregnant! I highly recommend it. I do not know what effects it will have if you're BF. I wouldn't think it would have any at all. I would definitely speak to your OBGYN about it first though. Good luck!!

I don't know the answer to your question, but we do have a birth control board here... you'll get more help there.

Thank you!! I am glad to hear you had an easy time getting pregnant after having it in for so long...that was one of my concerns...I have talked to my doctor, that is what they recommended, I just wanted to get someones opinion who has used it.
I posted this also in the Birth Control boards.
Thanks for the help!!
