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.

I have been taking this BC for about 14 months now & my periods have been regular, but sometimes I get them 2x a month. They are heavier and I have bad cramping, which I didnt have before.

My period hasn ... Show Full Comment
