Birth control after birth
Hi,
I gave birth three weeks ago via c-sec. I am not breastfeeding. When can I start using birth control again as I am scared to fall pregnant again so soon. I heard you must start as soon as possible as the pil will only start working after a few weeks.

You should only start the combined pill after 6 weeks. You can use the mini-pill in the meantime.

Best wishes
