So I am still nursing my 16mo old twin boys. I would really like to go to two years. I nursed my dd for 14 mo, and my ds for 18mo. I love nursing. Anyhow, I had my annual with my ob this week and discussed future birth control, for when I am done nursing. Currently we are using condoms, but ya know, they are not much fun. I got a prescription for the NuvaRing, which I have used before and liked. I do not plan on using it while nursing, but if I need to.... I want some opinions.
My doc said (whom I love) that it could probably mess with my supply, but it may not. They do not know effects of b/c on a nursing baby, but that many people use b/c when nursing. My main concern is that I have extremely heavy periods, and this last one was rather concerning. So of course b/c is the usual way to fix heavy periods. We'll see if the next few periods are that heavy, and if they are, I may need to use the b/c to regulate it, because a momma of twins and two others can not really lay around lightheaded all day, ya know?
So what are your thoughts on breastfeeding and birth control? Anyone have any resources they want to share??
