mini pill :) the only thing with that is you have to take it at the same time every single day (within a 2 hour time slot) otherwise it's not effective.

the plus is though, it starts working within a couple of days

Yes the "mini pill" it has progesterone only. Ask your doctor! Good luck hun. Just be carefull if you stop breast feeding or your nursing patters change it might alter your pill, like be less affective. So be careful. ok!



I got pregnant on the mini pill, my daughter was 11 1/2 months old and just stopped nursing, well my appt with my ob dr was 3 wks away within that time i was pregnant. LOL

I started to lose my milk when put on the pill. Now I have mirena (an iud) and have had no problems. It's what the lactation specialist recommended.

Yup if you want to take a pill the pill I was given is called micronor. It's a pill for breastfeeding moms

Yes, my Dr put me on the Nuva Ring. She said it was the lowest dose and it was safe while breastfeeding. It is really easy and you do not have to remember to take a pill. I am sure you have enough to worry about and remember already!!! You should try it.
