Pill after pregnancy

Hi, I am pregnant now, about 5 months, but I am just wondering how soon after having my baby am I allowed to start on the pill again, to avoid getting pregnant soon after? I am planning to breast feed for about 3 months.

You can use the Mini-pill while breastfeeding. When you stop you can go back to the combined pill.

You may go on Microval or the Mini Pill immediately after giving birth as it is the recommended pill for breastfeeding momies. I am on it.
