I have been on a pop for the past 6 months. My dd is 9 months old. She is still breastfeeding.
Did anyone else have their periods get lighter as the months go by? It's like when I had my iud... just some light spotting. Now I am spotting for the second time this month. Also I feel more cramps than I ever did before. The side effect I worry about most is its effect on my weight. After I got rid if my iud my weight steadly dropped until my second trimester. I lost about 25 pounds in 6 months without any major changes.
I have not talked to DH about stopping the pill yet because I know he would just encourage me to because he wants more kids. I don't want to be this overweight and out of shape when I get pregnant. I really don't feel healthy but I'm afraid that the pill isn't helping. I'm afraid condoms are not a good choice for us.
