What I have to say is looks lengthy but I hope you can find patience to read it. I have just s started taking micronor. And recently started experiencing breakthrough bleeding.

I was given this Birth Control pill because i breast fed my new born son. it worked great no issues. At nine months my son weans himself off the boob which was fine but my periods started coming back pretty light though. And here I am four months later and I'm pregnant. I took BC my whole life never had this happen unless I planned it. Beware!!

I will be calling my doctor tomorrow to make ... Show Full Comment
