Doc. Not liking ecological breastfeeding for PP birth control.

My Dr. wanted to know my method of BC for after the baby and I said I planned to intentionally use lactational amenorrhea practicing "ecological breastfeeding" for natural child spacing.

Well she and her apprentice are telling me it won't work effectively (even though it did - my child was 4 when I concieved) I don't want the issue brought up again because I don't want to be patronized in front of my husband, who will likely be paranoid if he hears our method won't work. Which is sure to affect our intimate life, if he gets that idea in his head.

I feel like they are alluding to an IUD because they know I don't like hormones??? But I don't want that either.

What are you supposed to do as the less educated patient and the Dr. doesn't like your BC method of choice?
