Birth Control Options

Hey Mamas!!

 

I'm going to the doctor today for my check up and we are going to discuss birth control.  I'm 33 and I've never been on birth control before.  I don't even like taking aspirin for a headache.  Does anyone have suggestions of a birth control option with few side effects.

    If you are breast feeding you are limited with what you can get. I'm on the mini pill but its not as effective ad the regular pill. I know you can also do an IUD I've heard both good and bad about that.

    I'm thinking about getting the non-hormonal IUD. I'm interested to hear what other people are doing.

    I don't tolerate hormones well, and did Fertility Awareness Method for years before getting pregnant. I need to do some research on how that works while breastfeeding and having interrupted sleep, because I'm not sure if that's an option now or not.

  • Condoms. I was on the pill and I hated how it made me feel. When I went off I told H I wasn't ever going back on it or anything of the like.
  • We will be using condoms. I can't handle birth control. I become a crazy ball of hormones that cries uncontrollably about everything.

  • Does anyone know if diaphragms are still an option?  I've decided that I don't want hormonal bc and I don't want an iud either (we want more children relatively soon and I didn't like the iud that I had before).  I did FAM to get pregnant but I don't think I can keep up with it with LO here.  Condoms are ok but they tend to give me pH issues and honestly they take away from our sex life...wish there was a better option!!!
  • I was on the non-hormonal IUD before - I can't handle the hormones in birth control. I thought the IUD worked great. My periods were a little more intense and lasted longer than normal, but that didn't bother me. A friend of mine also had an IUD, but she had really intense cramping. I'm not sure how common that is with the IUD. I recommend it :)
