Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The contraceptive measures should be selected based on your needs and medical condition. Your doctor/gynecologist is the best to suggest you the best suitable option based on the examination and evaluation findings. Get started on the appropriate measure as recommended. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact.
Take care.

Freedom 5
I can't say which one is perfect for having 2 or 3 years gap, with freedom 5, I think it is for 5 years, so you need other alternatives...

Just because it says freedom 5, doesn't mean it has to stay in for 5 years.

I have the UK version of freedom 5 (the copper coil) and was told that I could have it removed before the 5 years were up if I wanted it out or had problems with it.

Now I've had mine in for nearly 2 years and not had any problems. For the first month or two after it was put in I had really bad cramps but that settled down after a couple of months. My periods haven't got longer or more painful at all.

In the UK we don't pay for any contraceptives so Im not sure on the cost.

Only your doctor can tell you if freedom 5 is suitable for you. It takes 20 minutes to fit. Some cramping but if you take paracetamol and ibprofen about an hour before your appointment you'll hardly feel it but as you've had children these cramps are nothing compared to child birth.

The doctor will insert a device to get the size of your uterus so that the right size freedom 5 is put in. It can be removed sooner than 5 years and you don't have to remember to pack it if you go away, don't have to remember to take it or put in a prescription. Make sure its put in and taken out by a qualified doctor though.
