Mini Pill question

Postby 27jillfinallypreggo » Sat Nov 03, 2012 5:31 am

I've been on the mini pill since 6 weeks pp (I also have some drama, I got essure, it didn't work on one side, then i had an iud fall out 2 days after it was placed...). Anyway, I just started bleeding and am not sure what the deal is. I thought that as long as I was taking the mini pill there wouldn't be a period. Did I somehow ovulate while on it (I hope not!!) or is it just a side effect? Does anyone have any insight?

You can still bleed on the minipill. It's just different from combination pills in that it doesn't have the sugarpill week that induces bleeding each month, but once your body decides it's time to start menstruating again, it will happen. Also, the minipill works a little differently than combination pills and doesn't always prevent ovulation. The way it works is by making your CM hostile and also makes your uterine lining less than ideal to prevent implantation.

I went right back to normal cycles after DS while I was nursing and on mini pill. Everyone's body just responds different I guess...

I got my period every month while on the mini pill & twice had break-thru bleeding too(when I forgot to take a pill).
