I had my daughter 7 months ago and thus far the pill has been doing its job. Besides the headache and periodic backache I've adjusted well. I've also been getting my periiod every month since I started the pill. I like this pill since there are much less serious side effects.

I hate this pill!! My daughter is 4 months old. Since I've begun this pill my hair falls out all the time, I've gained over 10lbs, more than I was at 8 mths pregnant. My cycle is way off, comes and goes whenever and has nasty cramps I never had before. I'll be stopping as soon as my husband recovers from his BC surgery.
