I had my 2 week PP visit with my MW today, and we discussed birth control. I was on the mini-pill after I had my DS, but I worry about the effectiveness of it down the road when my DD starts weaning. The mini-pill is not supposed to be effective if you're not nursing, so I'd guess that it's not too effective when the child is weaning and down to nursing just a couple times a day.
She talked to me about NuvaRing, and said that it's a great method b/c it's effective whether or not you're nursing, there are low side-effects, it doesn't decrease your supply, etc. It sounds so great since I really feel like our family is complete at this point. But then I just read this on the NuvaRing website:
"Do not breast-feed while using NuvaRing®. Some of the medicine may pass through the milk to the baby and could cause yellowing of the skin (jaundice) and breast enlargement in your baby. NuvaRing® could also decrease the amount and quality of your breast milk."
Has anyone used NuvaRing while nursing? What's your experience?
