  • i didn't get the pill after hearing that it can effect your supply and that if you don't take it at the same time everyday that you can get pg. a few months ago when i was a bfing group meeting, there were several women giving birth at the hospital that had gotten pg while bfing and taking the mini pill.

  • Different variants of the mini-pill are known to cause crazy periods. And if you're not faithful abouttaking it, YES, you can get pregnant. Even when you ARE faithful you can get method save abstinence is 100% effective.

  • I got pregnant on the minipill while breastfeeding, even with taking it at the same time everyday. That was after my 2nd son, so after my 3rd my dr okayed putting me on the regular pill so I wouldn't get pregnant again.
