    hello ladies :D
    im thinking about starting my birth control again soon.
    i used to be on the pill before i had DS but fell pregnant on that because i forgot to take it sometimes.
    i want something that i dont have to think about taking everyday.
    i was thinking of having the implant. has anyone got one or reccomend it?

    I have the implant but I'm getting it removed next week as it's causing constant bleeding and frequent headaches - maybe that's why it's such an effective contraceptive lol :) Then again not everyone has the same side effects - some people don't have periods at all! It's worth giving it a go for a few months because it takes a while for any side effects to settle down and if you don't like it then you can have it removed (although I have heard that some doctors are reluctant to remove it after a short period - you could ask your own gp though)

    I don't recommend a coil LMAO, but I was like the 1 in 1000 that it didn't work for so don't be put off by my story cos chances are it would be fine for you.. there's a few replys towards the end of that thread with other peoples suggestions of alternatives though thats why I quoted it.

    I'm either going to stay with condoms until I stop breastfeeding and then find a full pill I can get on with, or start on the minipill and then move onto the full pill.
