My Mood:
My OB has always told me that EBF is NOT effective birth control ( and my friend got pregnant while EBFing, and never had a cycle)! So unless you are ok with the chance of getting pregnant quickly again, I wouldn't take the chance!!

Re: EBF as birth contrl first 6 months

my ob said that it is *mostly* effective as long as you aren't taking a 7 hour break from nursing. If baby is not eating for 7 hours together your body starts up again and you can get prego.

and i never had a period between my two boys... they'd ask me when the start of my last period was and I'd be like.... "uuhhhhhh...... more than a year ago."
