I take this pill because I get migraines. I've had no problems with it! No weight gain, unusual bleeding or anything. I hardly notice it, except when I take the pill!

I gave birth to my son 4 months ago. Since i wanted to breastfeed my baby doctor recommended that i get on the "mini pill". I am on my 3rd pack, I have not had a period since i began taking these pills. I have gained 10 pounds from my post baby weight and it is not due to over eating. I hate these pills, i can not wait to finish the pack and get off them.
