Another vote here for the Mirena - I had no periods either, no bad side effects and got pregnant 2 months after having it removed.

I'm just gonna breastfeed and watch for fertile signs. I didn't ovulate until 12 months post partum and conceived (intentionally) straight away, so I'm confident I can prevent or achieve pregnancy without any kind of intervention whilst I'm BFing this time. I followed the Billings method which is all about watching cm.

Not sure if this is something I can really suggest as you need to be very comfortable with tracking your own fertility, planning on`exclusivly breastfeeding and it is more of a natural child spacing activity rather than a fool proof form of not getting pregnant! And it probably helps a lot to have tracked fertility during Bfing previously.

ETA: I'll probably use an ovulation microscope and opks at some point as well to let me know what my oestrogen and LH levels are doing.

We're just going to be 'careful' for a year, i'll hopefully be breastfeeding so that might help a bit lol. I'd love another baby soon, but i know hubby wants to wait a while - after me being soooo paranoid about getting pregnant for 10 years, he can take the lead now!

I really don't want to go back on the pill between babies, I want to get back into a normal regular cycle before we try again, last time it was a nightmare, periods all over the place when I came off the pill, does anybody else feel like this?

I think I tried about half the types of pill going over the years. I was a bitch on microgynon, but I've had issues and side effects with everything I've been on. Some people just don't respond well to hormonal contraception.

Probably condoms or the nuvaring if my GP will give me it (they're quite new over here so not sure if every NHS trust offers them) Definitely not going back on any type of pill as they never seem to agree with me and since we may end up TTC not long after baby is 1 I don't want anything that takes too much time to leave my system.
