Dh and I are starting to think about post-partum birth control and I'm really perplexed! My understanding is that while bfing, the birth control options are:
-Progesterin only pills
-Barrier methods (sponge, etc)
Are there any others that I'm forgetting?
I'm considering the Mirena IUD or the progesterin-only pills, but am wondering how the Mirena IUD works? My understanding is that the copper IUD works not by preventing fertilization, but by preventing the fertilized embryo from implanting, thus causing you to "abort" the embryo. Is this correct? Does the Mirena IUD work in the same way? Thanks!
