Birth Control

You may be surprised to learn that you can, in fact, become pregnant even while you're breastfeeding. Consequently, your doctor will likely discuss your birth control options at this visit.

Keep in mind, not all birth control options are appropriate for breastfeeding moms. So be sure to mention your breastfeeding status. For example, you may be limited in which hormonal methods of birth control are safe for you, your baby, and your milk supply. Common options for birth control include: Birth control pills, Condoms, Diaphragm, Injectable birth control and Intrauterine devices (IUD).
