Mini pill and nausea?

I started to use Errin mini pill 3 months ago (my DD is 6 months old) becuase I was BF (and I'm still BF), I've never got a period, in the last 3 days I had a terrible nausea and I was wondering if that's a normal collateral effect or not. I tried to take the mini pill always at same time, but sometimes I took it later (in that case I didn't have sex for 48 hours).
Thank you :-)

  • Hmm... When I had nausea on the mini pill, I ended up being pregnant. I'm sure just about anything is a possible side effect, but this pill is not anywhere close to 100% effective, mostly because many women (myself included) still ovulate on it. I would take a test to be sure. I was also still BF. I don't mean to scare you, this was just my experience.
