Those of you taking the mini pill...can you tell me a little about it? I filled my prescription this weekend but haven't started. Side effects? Diminishing br___t milk?? I'd like to hear your experiences with it. Thanks!

I've had no bad side effects. My milk supply has been fine. The only thing I really noticed is before I started it, the weight was melting off me. I lost 25 lbs in my first 6 weeks. After I started it, I didn't lose one more lb. I've been the exact same weight since. I hear it's not very reliable, and you have to take it the same time each day. I'm really bad for taking it at different times. Usually in the same day...;O)....So I worry all the time. My dd is 6 months and still no period, which is fine with me! I hope this helps!

Thanks. I also heard I need to take it at the exact same time or it won't work... I am so bad with doing things like that! As for my weight loss, I have finally gotten to where I want to be, so I'm not to worried. My main concern is the lack of milk which i'm already having problems with. My son is almost 3.5 months now...and I had wanted to BF until at least 6 months...preferably a year, but that is out the window now as a full time thing. : (

Well, I have never had any problems with milk even before I started the pill, so I don't know what to tell you.....

You have to take it within a 2 hour period every da or use a back up method. As far as your milk suppy the reason the doctor puts you on the min pill rather than the reg pill is that it doesn't diminsh your supply. I never noticed anythin funky with my weight or hormone changes. It was ok for me- the two hour window to take it bums me out as thats hard to always do.
