an IUD. Mirena is good for those of us that have already had children. It is expensive if you dont have insurance that will cover it, but much cheaper than another child right now.
Love how folks answer as if a 17 year old having sex is a shock... Kudos to you for trying to be responsible.
Keep your legs together.
dont have sex
An aspirin...held firmly between your knees.
You would need something non hormonal then, condoms would probably be your best bet.
Theres these thing were they put inside you for 5yrs to 10 you can take it off when ever you want its call the T it works and not only that its a one time thing you deciede when you want to have one.
lol i know of only one guarantied way of not getting pregnant...don't have sex. But who am i to talk.
Ask about the Mirena IUD. I have it and love it. Just check your strings once a month. No pills no hassle. You can also use it while breast feeding.
condoms are 85% effective
you can also get a shot about once a year
and you can talk to your gynecologist and pediatrician about whether the hormones in the shots or pills will effect the baby
Well if your breastfeeding
Your going to have to wait til your done breastfeeding.
Because the hormones in the pills will mess with you milk
But the best birth controll "Besides having my tubes tied" I was ever on was the Nuva Ring.
You only have to change it out once a month and you don't even know its there, Not even during intercourse.
Ask your doctor, he/she will know what's the best option for you.
Try using an oovulation calendar and vcf - film. You're most fertile time is pretty easy to calculate so avoid sex during time. VCF works well, doesn't dim the experience and very quick and easy to use. I mean obviously a condom is the safest best but I assume you are looking for an alt
I am on the nuva ring and it works awesome! it has its many pros! Put it in and 3 weeks later take it out, get your period and 7 days after you take it out you put it back in for another 3 weeks. so on and so forth. It is the lowest dose contraceptive but you should be using condoms anyways seeing as it doesnt protect against STDS and wont always protect against pregnancy. Any birth control has its chance of getting pregnant, so dont think cuz your on it you wont get prego. be careful honey! Dont move too fast! You have your little blessing now, so spend all your time with that one! Guys arent important! any questions: email@example.com
Well, _you_ asked.
You can take a progestrin only pill, depo or IUD( Mirena or Paraguard) if breast feeding.
not having sex is easy to say cause your going to do it regardless but Birth control worked for me for 5years so give it a try..
your doctor should have descussed this with you. i use implanon.it lets me breast feed. it is a 3 inch plastic rod that is inserted right under your skin in your upper arm. i never feel it, and it didn't hurt going in. i love it because it works for three years and you never have to replace it or see the doctor to check on it. unlike the vaginal implant, you know the second there is a problem with it, the only problem could be infection, and that almost never happens. the only thing about implanon is that your periods will be 0% predictable. i have only had 1 period in the three months i've been on this birth controle but some women have a period every other week. you just take a gamble.
I'd just talk to your doctor, only you and your doctor know how you're body is, and could react while breastfeeding & after. That way you can steer clear from all the different options thrown at you on here, and get a real opinion from the doctor who knows you! Good Luck!!
There are vaginal condom's so you can be in control of your life.
