My husband is an interior home decorator. I got married when I was 24 years of age and now we are married for 3 years. We decided to have a child right after our marriage so our son came into our life soon after our marriage.
I was 25 years old after giving birth to my son and in the meanwhile, was promoted as supervisor at work. I was busy with work and also had to take care of my son. Hence, I didn’t wish to have another child for a certain period and discussed about using long term contraceptive method with my husband. We want to prevent pregnancy for a long term but we also wish to have a child when we are ready. At that time, I was concerned about using long term hormonal contraceptive method and then having to wait a certain period to get pregnant again. I also heard that some contraceptive method could curb breast milk supply. Hence, I consult about it with doctor closely.

After consulting with doctor, I started using long term contraceptive method- Lydia’s Copper Y which suits with me. Lydia’s Copper Y is copper bearing plastic rod which is inserted into uterus to prevent pregnancy. Lydia’s Copper Y IUD can be inserted into uterus which the help of experienced medical professional and it works right away. Hence, I don’t need to use any barrier when I have intimacy with my husband. Moreover, as it couldn’t curb milk supply, it is suitable for breastfeeding mother like us. It works up to 5 years. Your fertility comes back as soon as you take out the IUD whether it is because of its expiration or your decision to have a child.
Now I am 27 years old and my son is almost 2 years old now. As I am using Lydia’s Copper Y IUD, I no longer need to concern about forgetting to get injection or take oral pills and getting pregnant. All I have to do is, to feel for IUD strings after each monthly period. I am thinking of having another child in coming 2 years when I will be ready to have one.
