Family Planning/ Contraception

Family Planning/Contraception

In your postpartum care, you might also want to discuss options for contraception. Even if you know you want more children, the time between your delivery and getting pregnant again should be about 24 months for your health and the health of your babies. Your UWH of The Carolinas OB/GYN will go over your options for contraception so you can choose the method that will work best for you.

Some contraception considerations will include:

  • Timing of the particular birth control method. Some options can be started immediately after you give birth, while others should wait a few weeks after delivery.
  • Whether you decide to breastfeed. While most birth control options are safe to use while you are breastfeeding, some can have a small chance of affecting your milk supply during the first few weeks.
  • The effectiveness of the method after you have experienced pregnancy. Some options for contraception do not work as well in women who have given birth.
