I'm due to give birth any day now, and my DH and I have been discussing birth control.  Ugh.  I've really enjoyed not having to worry about it for the last year or so!  haha!


So, I've considered everything out there.  I don't want any hormones.  I've had a paragard, but I had terrible side effects with it.  I hate condoms.  I've used charting and FAM successfully for years, but since I'm going to be nursing the baby soon, I don't feel comfortable using FAM until my cycles regulate again. 


I like the idea of the diaphragm, but it seems kind of old-school, lol!  Anyone have any experience?


My second choice would be to try a Mirena, and hope the side effects are not as bad as they were with the paragard. 

Copper- wife to B, mama to DS1 Jeb 12.4.07, and DS2 William 8.11.11.  So thrilled to be expecting a surprise baby 10.26.14!!!
