My OB always said we would discuss contraception at my 6 week appointment. Technically, you aren't supposed to be having intercourse before then anyways.


We haven't used contraceptives since our first child and the closest our children have been is 14.5 months apart. Nursing and miscarriages have spaced most of our children nearly two years apart, some a little longer.
