Well the frustration got to much in August so I started doing more research on my options as a breast feeding mamma I need a progesterone only option. There were 3 options that I felt I could choose from but for some reason I was not getting peace about them. The 3 options consisted of Norplant, mini pills, or Depo Provera injections. Well, I crossed off injections because who wants to have to go get a shot all the time?? Not me. I thought long and hard about the Norplant since you can become period free. I mean not having to worry about tampons or pads would be amazing but for some reason I did not feel comfortable with that idea, it seems so unnatural not to have your period. I just want something to regulate my, provide some protection, and be safe while I am breast feeding.
I was believing and praying I would not need birth control but I went ahead and got some. So I decided on the mini pill and I started it earlier this month. I was so disappointed when I got another period only a week and a half after my last one while on it. The doctor said it could take a couple months to regulate but I am just tired of the head aches, body aches, tiredness, and crankiness. So I am still waiting and praying for my body to regulate!
My apologies on this post as I like to always remain positive... PRAISES of a wife and mommy. Just being real and I am sure I am not the only mommy who has struggled with menstruation after giving birth!
