Breastfeeding and fertility.
by: Zelda Behr

There are quite a few methods That can be used to prevent falling pregnant.

Here is a list, hope you find the one that suits you.

Firstly the most natural ones...

* Lactational amenorrhea breast feeding birth control method.
The hormone prolactin is released when a mother breastfeeds, this stops you from being fertile.
As long as baby only drinks on you, no water juice or pacifier use, and has not started solids you are 98% save.

* Rhythm method, Using vaginal temperature and mucus you can determined when your fertile period is, and abstain from sex.

Non hormonal...

* Condoms.

* Diaphragms used with a spermicide: remember to have your diaphragm refitted after your uterus has returned to normal shape.

* Mirena

* Sponges and cervical caps.

Hormonal treatment...

* Progestin only methods, Small amounts do pass through the breast milk with no affect. should only be taken after breastfeeding has been established.

* Estrogen methods, birth control that contains estrogen can reduce breast milk and is not recommended for breastfeeding moms.

Hope this helps.

Yes, you should use a contraceptive before your first period. Your fertility can return before your period shows up.

If you do not want to fall pregnant, you should make sure that you are on a form of contraceptive right after birth.
