Re: It's Back! =(
I actually got my cycle back around 9.5 months postpartum and my daughter BF'ed ALL THE TIME. She hardly ate solids much until she was around 15-18 months old. I got the copper IUD (Paragard) and have been happy with it. We are still BF'ing at 3 yr. It's not a great option if you have heavy periods & cramping to start with, but I never did, and I've been happy with it since it doesn't have hormones (hormones make me moody). We are undecided as to whether to try for a 2nd or not.
I'd avoid the Depo shot as it has been linked to bone density loss - not a good thing, to be sure.
