Well played, mother nature.

My midwife sold me on this pill saying it would stop keep me from ovulating and eliminate my period.

Lies.

My little one woke up crying 15 minutes ago. Luckily I stopped at the bathroom on my way to check on her.


Yep.

Middle of the night.

Mother nature sucks. And so does this blasted pill.

Breakouts, headaches, nausea, and my period. Friggin great.

 how long have you been taking it? maybe it takes a couple months before it works fully?

definitely a good point. 

when i had the mirena, my periods stopped. not immediately, but within the first six months or so.

Well, on the bright side, I am always happy when I get my period. No more babies for me! :)

Not a fun surprise in the middle of the night though.

Maybe it takes a little time. You're right mother nature is not fair to us women

I hate it when she shows up in the middle of the night like that. I had that happen to me this past weekend and had to get up and strip my bed which involved moving Jackson (he'd crawled into bed with me at one point) and then remaking the bed before I could fall back to sleep.
