Re: Went against the IUD, took Mini Pill Scrip! :)

I'm allergic to the spermicide stuff - - - we had some condoms with it once and i broke out and stuff, it was awful! Hubby refuses to wear a condom - he wants to pull out and squirt it everywhere - sorry if TMI - but then he sticks it right back it - - DODO - I hope the mini pill routine works - although i don't think we'll be too upset if we have a lil accident .

be careful mama, the mini-pill can decrease your milk supply. Many people say it doesn't but it certainly can.

I used the mini-pill. No problems with milk supply and no pregnancies! I was on a regular pill prior to TTC my first, so am not having any trouble remembering to take it.

My dh won't do the condom thing - just pull out -grrr....

Combined with NPF these are best IMO.


We do not use hormonal bc because of it's tendancy to abort already fertilized eggs. (thinning the lining of the uterus to prevent implantation) and this is against our beliefs. Pm me if you'd like more info.

We didn't use anything with our second while I was nursing but charting cycles. I got my tubes tied with my third.

Re: Went against the IUD, took Mini Pill Scrip! :)

I've had the Mirena IUD for almost 5 months now and have had absolutely no problems with it. I have had the shot before(before kiddos were in the picture) and I hated it and I can't remember to take pills everyday! So this was the best option for me and 5 years with no worries made it even better!! HTH!
