Hi all,
I am new on here and have a question regarding the mini pill.
I am 4 months PP and am not BFing anymore. I had a PPP that lasted 10 days. The 3rd day after it had stopped I missed one day of the mini pill and just took two the following day and then continued to take it reguarly - i have always been good about taking it the same time every day, except that one day. 3 days later we DTD...
I still am not sure what my cycle is cuz I bled for so long PP ... But my question is, how likely is it that I could be pregnant?
I've been reading that the mini pill is not very effective, especially if you're not BFing.
Is there anyone that has experience with the mini pill that might be able to give some input.

Welcome to Mothering! love.gif I don't have any experience or info to share (never took the pill). Bt I saw your post was missed so I thought I'd bump it up for attention.


Anyone with mini pill advice to share?

Hi I'm new here too : ) I did take the mini pill from 6 weeks ppd until my dd was about 9 months. I continued to breastfeeding and just stopped taking birth control. If you aren't BFing any more you should get off of the mini pill. It isn't that effective to begin with but more so if you don't take it at exactly the same time every day! I stopped bc I kept forgetting to take it. Good luck!
