    I went on it when i saw docs at 9 weeks post birth, but i was in no rush as i was bleeding until just before! I'm sure u can just pop and get it now

    I started taking the pill again 21 days after birth, just ask your doctor and they will discuss it with you.

    My OB told me that the highest risk of blood clot is 4 weeks after delivery so they will not put anybody on any kind of birth control until 6 weeks after birth.

    They talked to me about it when I was still in the hospital and then again at my 2 week check.

    My doc recommended 6 weeks to me.

    You can use condoms until your 6 week follow up. (they are such a pain though)

    I asked the doc about it at my 6 week check appointment and she said to start taking it from then.
