At 10 weeks along, I had a miscariage (so just seven weeks ago) and have yet to get a period again. I have the pill on standby, as I don't want to get PG again anytime soon (we weren't trying with the one that we lost and not sure if we want any more children). Anyone know how long after a MC it takes to get your period again?
    I would think 7 weeks should be long enough. I've never heard of having to wait for another period after a miscarriage before starting birth control. I'd take a test to make sure I wasn't pregnant again, and then start my next pack of pills on Sunday with or without AF showing up.

    Several people that I know with Mirena, who all love it now, have said that they spotted quite a bit for the first several month. I think you have to get through that part and then it's good (for most people, at least).

    As for Paraguard, my OB just told me at my last appointment that it tends to give people horrendous periods.

    Thankfully I finally started my period Friday. It was sad of course, because instead of being 18 weeks pregnant with my sweet baby, I got a period. Oh well... I'm just glad that I can finally start to feel normal again. Still not sure if I'm going to want another baby, but at least I was finally able to start my BC pills!

    We use nothing. Right now I am TTC so of course nothing is used, between DS and TTc starting a year ago I found abstinence to be a great form of birth control. Seriously breastfeeding tanked what little drive I have so it just didn't happen. I have told hubby I don't expect him to get the snip when we are done and he also doesn't expect me to get anything permanent done and the pill is so freaking expensive and it takes me awhile to find one that doesn't make me nutty, suicidal or homicidal, and at the cost of them I can't afford to trial one for a couple of months then go back to the doctor and trial another one.
