I was wondering if anyone can tell me. I have been only pumping and taking the "mini pill" since I have been only pumping does this increase my chances to get preagant. Didn't know if pumping was like breastfeeding. Just need to know what are the chances that I could become preagant

Breastfeeding is NOT a form of birth control. I was breastfeeding twins and got my period at 6 months - but how knows if I was ovulating before that and could have gotten pregnant. If you really don't want another baby and are concerned that the pill isn't enough - use condoms.

The mini pill is not as reliable as the combination pill and breast feeding (or pumping) should not be relied upon as contraception.

I became unexpectedly pregnant with my second child when I was breast feeding AND on the mini pill, so if you are really set against another pregnancy this quick I would use a barrier method such as condoms as well.

Hi Katie, you are missing some text. I pumped for 9 months, perhaps I can be of assistance?
