Spencer- a year would have been great! My body had other plans, I guess!

We are using condoms currently... well most of the time. lol. I have never been comfortable with hormone stuff- I was on a lot of diff bc pills in during and right after college. I never felt right. One actually gave me un-ending morning sickness, so then I was on anti nausea meds at the the same time. Craziness. I'm sure stuff that's out now is much better, though. I don't know much about mirena (it's an implant kind of thing, right?).

Julianne - You know I was thinking, sometimes people have an increase in lochia around the 6 week mark, as their uterus finally settles down to non-pregnant size again. Maybe that's what your "period" so early was? (I know it wasn't exactly 6 weeks, but so early when you BF would be unusual, especially since you then you didn't get your period again)

Yes, the mirena is a variation on the IUD which is a small insert into your uterus.
