I have taken it with my past three kids and will do it again with my fourth. It worked out great for me. My husband is wanting Vas but I believe I heard somewhere that it is still possible to get pg for a while after. I would be OK with that but my DH would just die. Four kids is about all he can take unfortunetly.

I have been on it for about 6 weeks now and have had no problems as far as bleeding or anything like that. The only thing i don't like about it is that you have to take it at the exact same time every day, if you're even a couple of hrs. late you may ovulate. It is not as forgiving as the regular pill and with a baby it can be harder to remember to take it.

I took it with my first while b___stfeeding (actually I was b___stpumping) and never had any problems. I got my first period about 2 months after the birth, and it was very light. I eventually stopped b___stpumping, and a month or two later when the pills were running out I called my OB for a new prescription of the regular pills. They almost died when I told them I stopped b___stpumping a couple months before. They made me take a pregnancy test before they would prescribe anything, and luckily I wasn't pregnant. I didn't realize that the progesterone-only pills only work well when you're also doing things with your b___bies. :-) I just thought I had to take it while b___stpumping because it was safer for the baby than the regular ones. So....if you go on it, don't forget to tell your doctor when you stop b___stfeeding! :-)
