Contraception advice please?

Hello Ladies. I've just had my first child who will be 5weeks tomorrow and as my post-natal check up is coming up soon I've been looking into contraception options. I'm looking at something long-term as I don't want my next child for at least 5years.

So far, I am considering the IUS (intrauterine system) - the mix of the coil & mini pill. Has anyone had any experience with this device and what was the reaction/outcome? Pros & cons welcome please!!

It all depends on your body. everyone is different. i found that i liked the depo provera birth control shot. every three months I think. It can cause weight gain but never experienced it. It seemed to make my period go away :) but I would say your bestbet is to talk to your doctor. thats the best place to get pros and cons too. good luck.
