Kailyn Lowry Asks Fans For Advice on Birth Control
It's been about five weeks since Kailyn Lowry popped out her baby, and you know what that means … she's finally allowed to jump back in the sack with her handsome hubby, Javi Marroquin! There's no denying that Kailyn and Javi make perfect, flawless babies, but these two want to take a break from having kiddos to concentrate on the two children they already have — Lil' Lincoln and Isaac!
This means that Kailyn has to go back on birth control, and it looks like she's in the market for a new form of protection…
"Has anyone been on mini pill for birth control? Thoughts?" Kailyn tweeted to fans on December 26, adding, "I can only do certain birth controls because of bf'ing."
It's unlikely that Kailyn will get pregnant while breastfeeding (most ladies stop their menstrual cycles all together), but it's definitely better to be safe than sorry. Kailyn's always been super open about her quest for good birth control, and we're glad she's once again engaging her Twitter followers in this conversation. Many of her fans will doubtless be inspired to practice safe sex because of her!
So, what is the minipill? It's a progestin-only pill (unlike regular birth control pills that contain estrogen) that needs to be taken once a day. Unfortunately, Kail worries that the pill will make her gain weight, but it's true that her options are rather limited due to breastfeeding!
Are you surprised that Kailyn is discussing her birth control options with fans? We love how open she is about sex education!
