As I was not very young, we decided to have a child after taking daily oral pulls for a year. Hence, now my son is almost 5 months old. I get back to my work, 4 months after giving birth to my son and I am completely tied up with work, house chores and taking care of my son.
I continued taking daily oral pills till my son was over 5 months old. However, last week I had to go on a work related trip and forgot to take pills for 3 days. I had intimacy with my husband on the day after I was back from the trip. I remembered that I hadn’t taken daily oral pills only after having intimacy. Hence, I take emergency contraceptive pill as I am afraid of getting pregnant. It makes me realized that I might not be okay with daily oral pills in the future.
So my husband and me went to OG Doctor (Obstetrics and Gynecology) and consulted about the matter. Doctor asked us how long we wanted to prevent pregnancy. We told him that we don’t wish to have a child in coming 2 or 3 years. So doctor explained us about implant method (implant in the arm). There are so many Implant brands but doctor recommended me to use Lydia’s Implanex.
Lydia’s Impanex (Implantation) is two plastic rods about the size of a matchstick that is placed under the skin of the arm. Doctor told me that it works up to 3 year. He also said this method is the most suitable contraceptive method for busy women and it can prevent pregnancy up to 99%. Hence, I use this contraceptive method with the help of OG.
With this method, I no longer need to worry about forgetting to take it or not taking it at the same time like daily oral pills. It works so well with me. Now I have been using this method for 2 years. I am thinking of having another baby girl when it is expired. Married ladies like me, please let me know what type of contraceptive method you are using!
