Hi Josie

Since your period has returned, no-matter how often you get it or how strong the flow is, you can now assume that you are fertile.

If you are not ready to have another baby, do not take any chances. The withdrawal method overall is not 100% safe, so I would not recommend this. Please find a more reliable contraceptive.

There are many methods that are safe during breastfeeding...mentioned here...

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.

Hi

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.

birth control while breastfeeding

I am 5 months postpartum and still nursing.

I had to go away from my baby for about 3 days last month. During which time, my cycle returned.

I am about to start a new job in a couple of days, so I'm definitely stressed.

My husband and I have been active recently and my cycle has yet to return. I want to take some form of birth control, but I fear it will affect my milk production.

SO I question which birth control is best while breastfeeding and what effect would pregnancy have on my milk supply?

natural birth control

by CourtneyCourtney

I was reading the natural birth control method AKA breastfeeding birth control (this means not taking pills correct)? My baby is only 2 months old and breast feeds numerous times a day and at least once during the night...how likely is it to get pregnant?
