Hello all. First post here and I'm turning to a forum as I need to get some advice. I'm a new father and just wanted to check the validity of what I've been told about contraception. So, here goes. My partner and myself (Well, my partner really) had a baby nearly 9 weeks ago now by c-section. Everything went to plan and no problems after the c-section and she has healed well. I asked about when contraception can be used again and when we can start having sex again. I was told that as she has recently just had her first proper period since the birth she has to wait until her next period to start taking the pill and then have to wait another until her next period till the pill will start being effective. The information above was told to me by my partner and part of me does believe her but I don't know what to believe tbh. Now as I'm male I'm fully aware of how I might come across only thinking about sex etc etc but I just wanted other people opinions on this matter? And nearly 3 months without is a long time. Also, please no posts along the lines of "Sit down and talk to your partner and discuss this" and I'm fully aware as to not pressurise my partner into anything she ain't ready to do, that's why I'm asking here. I'm just curious as to other people's views.
