I had my 6 week pp appt last week and my dr. prescribed me the mini pill for birth control. I started taking it 6 days ago and yesterday i started cramping and had light spotting...today i had more cramping and heavier spotting...i guess like a light period. istopped pp bleeding about a week and a half ago. I'm assuming this spotting is due to the pill but maybe it's leftover pp bleeding? Also, the past two nights (not including tonight) my baby was miserable. like 5 plus hours of crying in the late evening/night and NOTHING would calm her down. I didn't take the pill tonight and my baby seems much better. Not sure if it's related but seems like it could be. I don't think I'm gonna continue taking this pill. Anyone else have similar side effects?
Are you nursing? If so it's possible that the hormones (however few/low) in your mini pill threw your milk supply out of whack. When AF came back for me (I wasn't on the mini pill) my supply would dip and I had a fussy baby for a day or two.
If you're not nursing, disregard the above comment. I'm just lurking anyway, LOL.

On it. They actually want me on it to treat my pp bleeding. Yep - almost 9 weeks and bleeding. The pill has greatly reduced it though. My milk supply still seems good as I pump at work (and am pumping as I write this ) The doc did say to expect break through bleeding with rhis pill.
yes i am exclusively nursing. i skipped the pill last night and my little girl was back to her usual self. the bleeding has gotten a bit heavier, like a regular period though. ugh. yeah dr told me to start taking the pill immediately and it was safe for breastfeeding. i had stopped pp bleeding for about 4 days before i started taking the pill and it returned just 2 days after taking it. idk...i think i'm gonna stay off of it for awhile until i get my actual period. and yes i think the hormones definitely made my milk change..more so in taste than amount. i'm assuming. thanks for the input everyone!
i got prescribed the mini pill at 4 weeks pp and the dr told me that if i have not had unprotected sex yet or haven't had sex at all yet to just go ahead and start taking it as she knows with BF'ing your period may not come back for 6months or longer but i haven't started taking it yet
