Dont be daft hun of course you are welcome on here! As for contraception i havent got a clue hun sorry! I took the pill 10 years ago for 2 months and i bled everyday and the doctor wouldnt change it for me Evil or Very Mad so we've only ever used condoms. I'm sure one of the other girls will have some experience.

How are you and the kids? :aww:

just found your past post:

donna4 wrote:my lo is 8weeks i bf for the first 2weeks then my midwife told me to give up and give him formula as i had mastitus, sore and bleeding nipples stupidly i did it! 5 weeks later after taking two lots of tablets from the dr's to dry my milk up i was still slightly leeking! so decided to try again, my lo latches on and sucks for about 1/2 minutes but then gets very figity kicks about and crys he still is having his formula (6oz each feed) as theres still not enough milk for a full feed. I put him to my breast after every feed every 3hr's and combine hand and pump expressing in between. i so dont want to give up again Sad Any advice please

hun you did everything you could hun so you should be very proud of yourself. its the bad advice many health professionals give on :boob: that let you down hun. dont feel as tho your not welcome on here you always will be! :aww:

hi nice to hear from you again! i think you did a great job trying and youre always welcome on here!
as for the implant i know quite a few girls who have had it and had no problems. i think how it works is a slow release of hormone so it isnt as harsh on your system! oh and it can be taken out whenever you want if you decide to try again!
thats not to say it will be ok for you - youre best asking a dr who knows your background!
one friend who has it, cannot use the pill so has the progesterone only implant, shes had no side effect except no AF!
i was with another friend when she had it inserted and when she had it removed! its a fairly simple procedure didnt hurt her much and doesnt take long! hth :aww:
