  • I have tried two brands of mini pill and find they don’t agree with me, i can’t wait until i stop breastfeeding and go back on the regular pill as i’m not to sure about the bar or injection from stories i have heard about irregular bleeding and women finding it hard to conceive again when they go off them. So right now i’m on nothing right now. It depends on the person i think

  • The mini pill works well but is not very good after you stop breast feeding. It still works but really increases the monthly flow big time and makes it quite irregular.

  • depends on you. mirena is good as other methods mess with your hormones

  • My sister is using the mini pill at the moment, she has a 4 month old daughter and breastfeeds her and so far no complications and she finds it good. Me on the other hand I don’t ovulate so I don’t actually use any contraceptive.
