Birth control is
an important consideration after you have had a child. Your ability to become
pregnant again may return within 3 to 6 weeks after childbirth. Think about
what type of birth control you will be using, and make a plan during your
pregnancy. Most methods of birth control are safe and effective after delivery. But in the first couple of weeks after delivery or if you are breast-feeding, it's best to use a method that doesn't contain estrogen. Talk to your doctor about which type is best for you.
