Birth control after pregnancy

So, I want to be on birth control after my daughter is born. This pregnancy has been rough and my husband and I don’t want another kid right away (deciding if we want another at all in the meantime). Hormone contraceptives have made me gain a lot of weight, have bad migraines etc. I’ve had the pill, depo shot and I...

Confused

Hello, I used to always take pills, I was wondering after having 7/8 days period, if he come inside while having intimate relationship (just started to take again the pill from one day) is there a chance to be pregnant? (I know pills also are not secure, but more chance?)

Women who aren't on birth control

I've been on some kind of birth control for way too long and after having my daughter, I don't want any more hormones. For those successfully non pregnant and not of birth control, what's the best way to track your cycle?

Non-Parent Related

This has nothing to do with my kid but I need a response from my fellow ladies. Bactrim or Macrobid for UTI? I’ve read some scary things about Bactrim.

Trying to get pregnant naturally until I can get on Letrozole.

Contraceptive after birth

What contraceptive did you use after birth? Why?(I had a c section 2 weeks ago) I’d like something I can get off of whenever and not have to wait for my body to regulate to get pregnant. Definitely don’t want to be on the pill again. I’m thinking about the IUD but it kinda scares me lol

Has anyone used natural cycles for bc?

Particularly if you still haven’t gotten your period back. I’m 8 months PP and still haven’t gotten my period back (I’m bf) so I have no cycle to track. I want to try natural cycles and it says you can use it without a period but I was hoping others have used it this way

Birth control

Birth control that doesn't make us gain weight? Since being on the desogestrel pill I've been constantly gaining at a noticeable rate. Can't even fit in my jeans anymore. I used to have the coil but don't want to have that again just yet. The injection made me feel absolutely crazy.
