I'm a mom of a 6 month old and have been taking this prescription for a month and half now. I have not had a period. My doctor failed to tell me that with this prescription there are no placebo pills. Luckily I normally take them anyway.

I have been taking this medication for over a week and have not stop bleeding. I breastfeed my son and mix a little of formula. I seem to have a lot of pain in the lower parts of my belly. I don't want to stop breastfeeding but I can't put myself through this. My breast seem to hurt alot! I just don't kno what I should do. Sometimes being a mom can suck!
