Re: Birth Control

Our midwife suggested Mirena: less expensive, shorter cycles, good for five years, low dose of topical hormone, can be taken out at any time; or Copper IUD: no hormones, causes heavier bleeding/ cramping at first, more expensive. We're not planning on using either of them and have decided to use condoms. Have to be vigilant about it, though. No loosy-goosy since it only takes one time without it to get preggers!

Re: Birth Control

We do nfp. Im ebf my 4.5 month old. We cosleep, no pacis, night nursing 1x, and only a few bm bottles a week. Although I havent had a period since Feb 2009 Ive had 3 kids since than and know very well that ebf is not 100% reliable, although it is more effective than the pill in the 1st 6 months.

Re: Birth Control

We use Natural Family Planning (NFP). Have been married for 6 years with 2 planned kiddos 3 years apart. It really does work if you learn properly.
