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?

my doctor told me especially not the nuvaring, he gave me iud, depo, and the mini pill for options

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.
