Combined Pill for Contraception After Childbirth

The combined pill contains Estrogen and Progestin, both in minimal quantities. The combination of hormones provides the safest form of contraception.

If you are breastfeeding then it is usually recommended that you wait until the baby is six months old or until you want to stop reduce breastfeeding before starting the combined pill. This is because the estrogen component tends to reduce the milk flow. If you feel there are no other suitable methods of contraception these methods can be considered from six weeks after the birth.
