Contraception After Giving Birth

After giving birth, a woman may wonder what safe contraception options are available to help prevent pregnancy while not affecting the well-being of her newborn. Fortunately, there are several methods that can help new mothers avoid pregnancy without affecting a child’s health.

Combination birth control pills such as YAZ, Yasmin, and Ocella can negatively affect your breast milk production and quality. Thus, they can be dangerous for a nursing newborn. Additionally, YAZ, Yasmin, and Ocella can also be hazardous to your own health as they increase the risk of heart attack and stroke. If you are a victim of one of these oral contraception pills, contact a knowledgeable YAZ lawsuit lawyer from Williams Kherkher today at 800-761-3187.

Contraceptive Options

Due to the hormones in combination birth control pills, Planned Parenthood recommends that you wait at least three weeks after giving birth before you start taking the pill again. If you are nursing, you should wait at least six weeks. The World Health Organization actually recommends waiting up to six months if you are breastfeeding. Instead of a combination pill, you can use the following alternative methods of contraception:

  • Physical barriers such as male or female condoms
  • Progestin-only pills (also known as POPs or mini-pills)
  • Continuing breastfeeding

If you solely rely on breast milk for feeding your newborn, it can actually affect your hormones in a way that can help prevent pregnancy for up to six months.
