birth control for nursing moms — The Bump

birth control for nursing moms

I will be having my 6 week pp visit with my OB soon and I know she'll want to discuss birth control options. I EBF and am hesitant to take anything hormonal, even the progesterone only bill. What are the rest of you using? I'm interested in the IUD but am a bit nervous as I've heard that it's placement is painful (although after birth I feel like I could handle pretty much anything!) and I'm also concerned about how long it would take for my full fertility to return once it's removed. I know condoms are always an option, but not my first choice. Am I missing other non-hormonal options? Thanks :)
