When my son was about a month and a half, but i have not had a period since. But Im pretty sure I had ovulated last month. Ive been on the pill since my 6 week check up. so about 4 months. I was just wondering bc I have read that there has been a lot of women on the mini pill and have gotten prego and didnt even know.

How long have you been on the mini pill? Have you had any bleeding or periods since your baby was born up till now?

If this is the first time bleeding since your LO was born I'd say it sounds like your periods are returning. They don't always return the same as they used to be before baby was born. And the mini pill can affect the length and how heavy the period is too.
