Bc pill while bf'ing

My ob just prescribed me micronor?, a no estrogen bc pill to take while breastfeeding exclusively. Anyone taken this before? There are no placebos, you take it everyday like a vitamin. Just wondering if it will bring on my period sooner based on the hormone mix.

The mini pill caused my milk to dry up and I had my first ppaf one week after I started taking it.

I think you have to take it at the same time every day, it's what I was using with ds, if I was late taking it I would start spotting.

Yes my midwife said try to take it as close to the exact time you took it the day before, if you're 30min -1hr late you could ovulate and get pregnant. I was never late taking it, i had an alarm and dh had an alarm so we were covered. I know a handful of women who also claim they never took it late and became pregnant (I'm one of them, due in July with #3, LO #2 is 13 months old now).

Re: Bc pill while bf'ing

Thanks ladies-good info. I'm good at taking the pill same time everyday, interesting though the pharmacist didn't mention it. I have tried so many kinds of the pill (the regular one) before being pg, that I wasn't sure what difference this one was and how it would effect me.
