Birth control and nursing - is it working??
My DD is 16 months old and I am still nursing her a lot every day. I started the mini pill so that I could still nurse and use birth control, too (I am nursing the wee one as we speak, so I can't get to my purse to double check what the ACTUAL name is, but this is a very common name for this pill). I started the pack right after I finished my regular period (second one I had since having the baby!) and then shortly after I began having something like breakthrough bleeding - brownish, light discharge, like at the beginning and end of your period. This started around the beginning of the second week of the pills, and now it's almost the end of the THIRD week and it's more like a regular period. My question is... Is this considered normal for someone who hasn't been on birth control for a long time? OR does this mean that the pills aren't strong enough and I need a different pill? My DH and I have been using condoms anyway, as this was the first month of the pill, but we are quite happy with two kids AND we do not want to opt for something permanent just yet as we are both only 29 and you never know!
