I have no energy, I'm gaining weight because I'm always hungry & I don't know if it's because I'm breast feeding and my baby eats a lot or the pill. A couple weeks ago for his 2mnth check up his weight is at 14lbs. I also have a 21 month old daughter... I seriously have no energy. I need advise!! :/

My Doctor didn't want me to be on the pill and breastfeed- but I only had a few options pill-wise due to other health issues. Having two young children is exhausting in itself! Have you had any blood work done. I know they did some on me and come to find out I need injections of B12 every 2 weeks. I was also really tired and found out I have "chronic Mono". I had mono in my late teens, and I still have it (2 out of the 3 markers). It might be worth getting some blood work done and making sure everything is within it's normal range. I had the implant in my arm, and I was MISERABLE. I had it removed and lost weight pretty quickly. It still took a bit to get back to "normal", though! Good luck!
