Birth Control after Baby- Fertile Myrtle

We conceived our sweet girl less than two months after we got married. While we’re blessed to have been fortunate enough to get pregnant so quickly without much effort, we are now terrified of getting pregnant again too soon. As a breastfeeding mama, I’m currently taking a mini pill (a pill without estrogen) as a contraceptive. BUT, having a 2 month old and remembering to take the pill at the same time every day is near impossible. I’ve heard too many scary stories involving IUDs and the Depo shot. Condoms aren’t an option for me as I have incredibly sensitive skin. PLEASE help a mama out and give me your best birth control methods that prove effective!

I have the iud and it’s the best birth control for me. Never had any problems with it.

The ring is easy although you have to remember to take it out and put a new one in every 4-6 weeks.

It’s the same “medicine” as the pill just without having to take that pill everyday. The pill was all that worked for me without side effects (I tried literally everything else) but I just couldn’t remember to take it everyday. But weeks I can deal with. Just have a reminder on my phone what day to switch out.

I use the Ava watch to track my cycle and contraceptive film (Basically spermicide) It works, and you can use it in the moment so it’s not something you have to remember every day.

How does the spermicide work? How do you apply it? How do u get it?
