After I had my baby I got the nexplannon in my arm but I did see a decrease in breast milk, but my dr. Told me birth control always effects everyone differently. But there is all kinds of supplements to help with milk supply!

I'm also using Mirena. I had it inserted 8 months ago. No more periods!! Only a little weight gain. Nothing a few weeks at the gym can't take care of. It was a little uncomfortable/painful getting it inserted but it's been smooth sailing since then.

With my first I was on the mini pill ! Worked great for me. 10 months later I stopped taking them for a week got pregnant instantly

I was on Mirena at first but I had terrible side effects and my milk dried up after a few months. I'd try something that's a little less expensive and permanent before taking the big leap

Thank ladies! I've never heard of the mini pill. Definitely have to look into it. What're some of the common side effects that you've experienced personally?

I had a very light period not any major side affects I was also working out so I didn't gain weight or anything no crazy hormones . It's an overall good choice you just have to be on it and take them right if your joy Tryna get prego .
