One thought on “Do I need contraception if I’m breastfeeding?

  1. Arti says:

    Lots of women find that their periods are much less painful when they are using hormonal contraception. It’s also known as PMS (premenstrual syndrome). The advice is to wait for 18 months or longer before becoming pregnant again. Hormonal contraception is very good at reducing period pain. Premenstrual tension is shortened to PMT. Breastfeeding can help to delay when you start ovulating and having periods again after giving birth. There’s no need to have a period every month – on the pill, patch or ring it’s easy to control when a period comes, by taking the method continuously without a break. A period will come when you stop the method (for a week). This is because if you get pregnant again quickly, the next baby might be too small, or be born too soon.
