Contraception and Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding can be up to 98 per cent effective in preventing pregnancy when the following conditions apply:

  • you are fully breastfeeding – this means you are not giving your baby any other liquid or solid food

or   

  • you are nearly fully breastfeeding – this means mainly breastfeeding your baby and infrequently giving your baby other liquids
    • and your baby is less than six months old
    • and you have no periods.
