On the mini pill I was still having mid-cycle bleeding (which was normal for me pre-baby), so I tried a "normal" pill (I forget which one it was, I know for sure it wasn't tricyclene). Everything was fine for the first couple of weeks, but then my milk production completely tanked. At that point DD was about 6 months old. From that time until she stopped taking bottles at day care (about 12 months old) I was stuck taking ... crap I forget the name of it, but a prescription pill to help milk supply ... daily. And that pill sucks (dizzy). If I had to do it over again, I'd just stick with condoms. They're much easier.
I didn't notice any milk supply issues with the mini pill, but beware of the regular pills.
