Yes, be sure to take the one that is best for you. If you are nursing, then your doctor will prescribe a specific birth control designed for nursing moms. Nursing moms often don't have a period until they are done nursing. Be sure you know the risks of birth control before taking it, read the fine print where it talks about possible side effects and long term effects. Some people prefer the natural birth control method (condoms) because of the problems with hormones. If you can possibly avoid B.C., try. Messing with hormones is never a good thing.
