Your options are
IUD (mirena or paraguard)
Depo (shot)
Implanon (3 year implant in the arm)
Mini Pill



or obviously condoms and such.



I used the mini pill personally.

I know everyone is different bit I very strongly suggest you stay away from the shot. Or at least read about it before deciding to go on it.

I took micronor while BF but it made me go insane. Really messed with my emotions. I didn't like it at first. I had to go back and was put on prozac to help with the severe mood swings and a bit of PPD.

This! My body couldn't handle the shot or the Mirena. But like she said, everyone is different.

Quoting *KatteyBug*:" What is the issue with the depo shot?"

It can cause bone loss if you are on it for to long. If you have a negative reaction its in your system for 3 months.

Oh I see. Our plan atm is for us to just use condoms till after I'm done BF just to make sure nothing interferes with me feeding her.
