Q:

Regarding contraceptive methods post delivery, is it a good idea to prefer birth control pills over copper t??



Sonali Shivlani

Birth control pills can cause a reduction in breast milk supply. Also you need to remember and take them at regular intervals. As they are hormonal they can cause a delay in conception when you plan your next baby. Copper t is worn internally does not need to be remembered and on removal can conceive immediately. However it can cause heavy menstrual bleeding, spotting in between cycle, infections etc. for more details read my articles on contraception on Babychakra
