Any BC Mamas Using....?

The MINI PILL?

I have been using the NFP method + Condoms since our 1 year old was born. I am still night nursing.
We use the condoms during ovulation periods, but are now feeling that we need a little more protection, just in case.

I used the Mini pill when our 1st was born and didn't like it because my 'regular' periods started to become irregular. I wasn't sure if this was because I messed up while taking the pills or it was just the pills.

I go to the Doctor at the beginning of next month. I believe he will be giving me NOR-QD or a generic form.

My question is..... Has the Mini Pill messed with anyone else's periods & how many of you have gotten pregnant while using this pill?

 I dont know what the mini pill is. I take LoEstrin24 and I love it. My period starts the same day every month and lasts for 3 to 4 days.

I think I will talk to the doctor about what he would suggest with what I am going through right now.

Thanks ladies

 I got pregnant on it. I was still nursing my DS1, never had a period, and turned up pregnant when my DS1 was 8months old...

It depends A LOT on what brand om POPs you use. I've tried some that made me get my period for 7 days every 14 days. It sucked big time. I'm on it right now but wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It has taken away my periods completely but they also made me gain 10 pounds and I feel blah on them. Although I have never got pregnant while using any POPs. I can't wait to get back on the POPs I took before LO was born. They worked PERFECTLY for me. So it makes a BIG difference on what brand

I believe the only BC that I can get from my doctor is pill form.

We really feel that natural family planning with condoms is not going to be enough for us.
