First month on this pill and all I have done is bleed, feel very ill and very emotional. Experiencing headaches as well. I also have noticed my 2 month old daughter has been more fussy since I have been using this pill - I breastfeed without supplimenting with formula. Not sure if her fussiness increase is due to me using this pill. With the constant bleeding it seems stupid to even take this ... Show Full Comment

I've been taking this for at least 4 months. I still have yet to have any period. My son ia 7 months old. I like it, no side effects the only thing is it is hard to take it the same time each day. I miss using the ring, which I can't use while breastfeeding. But all in all it is a good drug.

I started the pill 6 weeks after delivery. My daughter is ... Show Full Comment

I've been taking this pill since my 6 week check up. My baby is now 3 mos. and my hair is shedding excessively (leaving thin patches), I've gained around 5lbs, I've broken out terribly and I notice my baby has broken out slightly on his face. I understand his breakout could be a result of my hormones transferred in breast milk. Also, my physician or pharmacist never explained that the ... Show Full Comment

I'm 45 yrs old, if the directions say take it the same time every day I do just that. No problems or side effects at all. It makes me angry that women "forget" their birth control pills. Getting pregnant and raising a baby is something to give much thought to. If we want to be in control of our bodies then we must also be in control of taking our birth control.
