Birth control options after giving birth.
LAM can be used immediately. 
It is only effective if you breastfeed your baby exclusively, no formula at all. It can help to use a breast pump to use if you cannot physically breast feed the baby at some point throughout the day. This works by changing the hormones to prevent pregnancy. It is only effective for 6 months though, after the baby is older than 6 months you have to find another method. You also have to make sure you feed the baby every 4 hours during the day and every 6 hours at night. As soon as you get your period that means you’re ovulating again and this method is no longer effective. This method also reduces the risk of breast, ovarian, and endometrial cancer. It’s important to talk to your doctor if you are on any medication or have any illnesses that may make it impossible for you to breast feed. Remember, if you are HIV positive, there is a risk of transmitting the virus to the baby through breastfeeding. It’s important to plan what method you will use once you are no longer able to use this method before it happens. This is something to think about as soon as you give birth or before. If you’re having trouble producing milk, talk to a lactation consultant. Some tips are that the more the breast is empty the more it’s filled up so increase feedings or pumping. Get lots of rest, lots of liquids, and vitamins as fatigue can also decrease breast milk. If you want to use another method with breast feeding if you’re worried about the effectiveness, condoms, the sponge, cervical caps, diaphragms, progestin only pills, shot or implant, and/or an IUD can be used. Combination methods are not a good fit for breast feeding. Talk to your doctor about when they’d suggest using another method.
Condoms and Spermicide   can be used immediately. 
Penile Sterilization can be used immediately. Uterine sterilization can be used immediately and up to about 2 weeks or any time past 6 weeks. (for more on Sterilization)
IUDs   can be used immediately and up to 48 hours after giving birth or any time past 4 weeks.
If breastfeeding, you can use progestin only birth control methods any time after 6 weeks. You have to wait till after 6 months to take combination hormonal methods. If not breast feeding, you can take progestin only methods directly after giving birth and combination birth control methods any time after 3 weeks. (for more information check out The Shot  The Implant  Birth Control Pills Nuvaring  The Patch)
You can use Cervical Caps, Diaphragms, Sponges any time after 6 weeks.
You can use Emergency Contraception any time after 4 weeks.
Although not on this chart, you can’t use fertility awareness until you have regular periods again.
