My doctor put me on this pill just after having a baby.The Dr. told me that I could not get pregnant on Ortho Micronor and breastfeeding at the same time. Now my baby is six months old and now I am pregnant again. I have been taking the pill and I did not miss any pills. So no this birth control did not work for me.
