I'm on the mini pill- have been since ds2 was about 6 mos old, he's now 13 mos old and still nursing pretty frequently. About 3 weeks ago, I was late taking one pill and had break through bleeding a few days later. I thought I was starting my period, was bummed b/c I had read that once you start your period on the mini pill, it's best to switch to the regular pill, so I was going to call the doc about that. The 'period' only lasted one day, so I chalked it up to breakthrough bleeding (it was then I remembered about the late pill).
Well, now, 3 weeks later, I'm thinking of getting a pg test. I'm not sure one way or the other, but it's possible I ovulated in that one day, isn't it?
So, please give me your stories one way or the other about taking a pill late and being pg or not while on the mini pill.
I'm going to wait and see if any symptoms show up before getting a test- I've been tired and cranky, but we just got over being sick. I think I've got a yeast infection thanks to the antibiotics I just finished. I've been nauseous today, but that could be any number of things.
Thanks for sharing!!
