Re: Birth control
You could also consider an IUD; which is not permanent but very low maintenance. I used the mirena (low dose hormonal) and didn't notice a change in supply. The other benefit to it is that it lightens periods and cramping. The paraguard is copper, doesn't have hormones, and is equally efficacious; for some women it makes cramping and periods a little worse. We think we're done after #2 is born, but I'll probably get an IUD just to make sure the baby making desires are totally gone for the year or two. Then my husband will probably get snipped. But we'll see. IUDs have a bad rep in this country (if you are in the US) because of the disaster of the IUDs in the 70s, but nowadays they are safe and effective.
