Breast Feeding as Birth Control
The Lactational Amenorrhea Method can be used effectively as a birth control method after giving birth. It is a convenient, safe and effective method and can last for up to 6 months after giving birth. Women who have given birth may use this method of birth control by continuously breast feeding their baby.
The act of breast feeding will naturally change the hormones in a woman, which ensures that she doesn’t get pregnant. Using breast feeding as birth control is extremely safe, since there are no known side effects that are associated with it. You should also consult with your doctor if you are using breast feeding for birth control.
