  1. If you are planning on brseatfeeding, they will tell you to wait for birth control or put you on what’s called a minipill at six weeks; the hormones in birth control pills can change breastmilk production and brseatfeeding exerts some measure of birth control by itself (not enough to rely on though). If you choose not to breastfeed, they will put you on a birth control pill at six weeks. You can use condoms until you have been on the birth control for at least a month. Many women have sex before the six-week mark, they wait until they stop bleeding and any stitches have healed but some find it hard to wait. Talk about birth contro with your Ob-Gyn when you get into week 32 or so. He/she can give you lots of information and help you make a decision. This will give you lots of time to ask lots of questions and your provide will know what special considerations there are for you.
