birth control & breastfeeding

What can I use as birth control if I plan on breastfeeding.. I used to have a nuvaring before I got pregnant.. can I use the same thing again if I'm going to breastfeed?

Iud, depo, mini pill, or a tubal ligation. I have the non hormonal paragard iud and I love it. You can also use the mirena iud, but I wanted a non hormonal option.

Ask your OB.  Mine talked about a 'mini' pill.
