Well so far I have been bleeding off and on. I stopped taking the pill to see if this was the cause of the bleeding. It was. I started the pill again. I began to bleed. It's quite depressing that I cannot use any other type of BC while I am breastfeeding. I think i am better off not taking the pill so I won't deal with the bleeding. I started the pill 6 weeks after delivery. My daughter is ... Show Full Comment

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.

I read that it could transfer through breastmilk ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I started taking the errin oral pill about a month and a half ago, due to heavy bleeding and severe cramping. My period came after two weeks of use, I had some slight discomfort and minimal bleeding for about 4 days, I also had just had my normal period two weeks prior. I was switched to Jolivette oral. After 28 days I had another period, it has been very heavy like before and I have been bleed ... Show Full Comment
