Hi! I'm currently EB and taking the minipill. At my 6 week checkup, I had not started my period. My doctor prescribed the minipill because I am breastfeeding. A week into my first pack of pills, I started my period. It lasted for about a week and was very heavy. Since then, I haven't had a period. It's been about 49 days. I took a HPT about 2 weeks ago to rule out pregnancy, but it was negative. I'm thinking maybe I should take another one? Is it common to not start your period again for awhile after your first postpartum period while breastfeeding and taking the minipill?
