However, if there have been an earlier post on the above subject where people shared their opinions kindly send d link to me. Its quite urgent pls. My baby is 3 months old already I need to do Family Planning ASAP.


  1. Poster please check this old post too. It might be helpful.

  2. Poster both implants and IUD (infact all contraception) have advantages and disadvantages. Our bodies are different and will react to contraception differently.
    I'll suggest you google both and be well informed before you decide.
    I am on my 3rd IUD (mirena coil after each preg) and never had serious problems. Initial problem is heavy and very long periods (12-15days) but later settles down to normal after some months. All the best.

    The injections are quite convenient, but likely to make you fat, especially if you are already on the plus side. I find IUD also okay though some people complain of excessive bleeding and infections. I have used both but stopped the injection when I blew up in size. Right now I am on IUD and having the time of my life.

  4. If this is your first child, and your are planning another pregnancy in the next 2 years, I would advice you go for IUD. This is because it does not tamper with your hormones, and you can simply take it off whenever you are ready. Injections on the other hand can be used if you want to stay longer, because it takes time for your system to normalise after injections. Personally, I used IUD for my first two kids, then changed to noristerat injection which made me add a lot of weight, so I had to stop. Right now I am on depoprovera injection which is good for me. However whatever method I use ceases my period (that's my own personal side effect.
