as far as I know the pill has the lowest dose of hormones but can still affect your breastmilk supply. And you will still want to use condoms because of the low hormone level

Talk to your dr about a non hormonal IUD, pills used to make me NUTS, but with this I’ve had no problems.

Nuva ring is the best

I used the mini pills didn’t effect my breast milk but y’all to ur obgyn

Copper IUD (I’ve had for 2 years way better then the mirena it made me crazy)

Only one I know of is the 10year IUD that’s non hormonal. I usually take the low dose birth control. I haven’t had an IUD in almost 10 years now and at that time I was told only the 10 year IUD is non hormonal. The 3yr and 5 year have hormones. Good luck.

Basically, nothing in life is “free”
By that I mean the copper iud, non hormonal yes, but makes women have heavy bleeding (my ob won’t even put them in anymore bc so many women have heavy bleeding and cramping from it). Mini pill isn’t 100% neither is condoms or a diaphragm (good luck even finding a diaphragm bc my ob looked and closest to me was 3 states away)
Mirena, the shot, and the implant, nexplanon are hormonal, but with that comes side effects, mood changes, weight gain, etc.
Basically let’s all pray this new male birth control they’re doing trials for at university of Kansas catches on :pray:t3::pray:t3::pray:t3:

Non hormonal would be the iud paraguard. It’s a 10 year birth control that can be removed.

I had Nuva Ring and it gave me blood clots, I won a class action lawsuit against them. I had a paragard non hormonal IUD and my daughter was born holding it. :joy::joy:

I have the chip in my arm can’t remember what it’s called but through breastfeeding and mental health I’ve never had a problem and it’s good for 3 years!

Paragard IUD works great & it does not have hormones

It really going to depend on each person cause I had an IUD copper wire and it perforated through my uterus in less than 2 months and I had to have it surgically removed

If your married and don’t want anymore ask him to get snipped…we as women already do alot we have to carry a human for 10months the least a man could do lol this is what I have resorted to cause of how hormones make me feel and I refuse to get a hysterectomy or tubal that can also cause complications I don’t need .

So you can still get pregnant even if you take the pill everyday?

No help besides tracking your fertility. Knowing when you are ovulating, then you can not have sex during that time frame. I got pregnant with Mirena IUD, and the DEPO shot. Good luck.

Copper iud, in my experience it have been the worst for me. Get it removed after 6 months.

Birth control depends on you, every person here will have different experiences due to the nature of their bodies. I would say try whatever your top 3 are and see what works best.

Look into fertility awareness methods. We personally use the Creighton Method.

Hormone free birth controls include condoms, sponge, cervical cap, diaphragm, copper IUD and sterilization. Estrogen free birth control won’t effect your breast milk, which would include the depo shot, implant, Skyla and Mirena IUD and mini pill. You can get the mini pill with low doses of hormones as well, but you have to be extremely diligent at taking them at the exact same time everyday or they’re not effective. Research other side effects as well when making your decision!
