BTDT: Extended BFing and BC

This is kind of a part 2 to my previous thread - 'What the heck'. I don't mean to exclude anyone here but I really need responses from BTDT's that are extended BFing only to make an accurate decision.

As I just updated in my previous thread, I had my appt with the OB today. She basically said that I'm no longer protected on the minipill and that I either need to stop BFing (which is out of the question), or switch to another form of BC. She is recommending the Mirena IUD since it supposedly won't affect my milk supply but still provide protection. I have to see if it will be covered under our insurance, otherwise she said it's about $700. I'm going to have a chat with DH about it soon so we can figure out what to do.

I would love to just ditch BC altogether and go back to FAM, but we do not have maternity coverage at the moment (as most of you are previously aware) so we absolutely cannot afford an oops right now, otherwise I'll be having a homebirth and praying I don't need to be transferred to a hospital, lol! We don't use condoms because DH has ED issues related to his prostatitis (sp?),
