I just started this pill from Loestin due to breakthrough bleeding. I am about two weeks into it, and I feel crazy. I am curious how others have felt on this pill. I want to give it a chance, but I have had crying episodes, very down and mopey, and also NO s_x drive at all.

I am not taking it now, but took it a few years ago and it did the same thing to me! As soon as I came off, I felt like my old self again. This also happened to my best friend and a couple other people I know...so I say...stay the heck away from it and get on a different pill! :)

I just started taking this pill a week ago, due to break through bleeding. So far I have had no reactions, but like I said I have not been on it very long. I will say I have no s_x drive at all, but felt the same way while on my other pills. Thanks for the heads up though!

I had beeb on Loestrin 24 and I had constant bleeding. My doctor switched me over to Yaz, which is the same hormones as Yasmin, but at a lower dose. It is recommended for women who have bad PMS or PDD. I have been very happy with it. My periods are only about 2 days and very light. I have very few homonal issues with it.

Sorry, I meant PMD (premenstral dysphoria)

The pill always does that to me, yet I am in a dilemma I need to do something to regulate my periods, I am all over the place and am not on any b/c right now. Before we conceived we had practiced NFP very successfully for about 7 years, but now my hormones are all over the place and I cannot chart myself due to having 2 periods within 2 weeks of one another. Does anyone know about a pill that I can take while b___st-feeding and what problems have occurred if any with them?

My doctor just took me off my pilss cuz I had horrible side affects and for the first time since I was preggo I got my s_x drive back!! (If only my perky b___bs :( ) but the pill never zapped my s_x drive before but wow after ds it killed it. We are onto the pull and pray method and I am starting to feel a bit more normal again. Erin I took the mini pill during nursing an never saw a decrease in milk production I did have break thru bleeding though so I went to Loestro and that gave me horrible side effects but regulated my period without decreasing milk production as along as your supply is well established the pill shouldn't be an issue for you.

I googled side effects and they are very varied. Some loved it, and others hated it. I just don't know if I should finish the pack and go for another one and see how I do. I did so well with Loestrin before, but having a period every two weeks wasn't good.I read stuff about Yaz too, most of which wasn't good. I may ask my Dr about Yaz though and see what he recommends. Thanks girls!

My milk supply is well established I have been b___stfeeding for nearly 6 months. I just want my body "normal". It's weird because I had 3 periods that were right on schedule, now I'm all messed up, I have no idea why I'm all over the place.
