I got pregnant with Gwenny using those! They also irritated me and I would more often than not end up with a UTI after using the goo. I am on the mini-pill now. I keep my cell phone next to my bed and set an alarm for 8:30 am. Gwenny usually wakes up around 8 so while I feed her the alarm goes off to remind me to take the pill. It's really not a big deal. I certainly do not have any issues with milk supply!

I am using the minipill also and it hasn't decreased my milk supply, but it is hard to remember to take them at the same time everyday. The first month i was taking them, i did horrible and missed like 7 all together. Luckily wasn't much going on in that department after having a baby. LOL!

Re: Went against the IUD, took Mini Pill Scrip! :)

i have the mirena, i haven't gained any weight after pg like i did with the pill, the ring, and the patch. i just havne't lost my pg weight *grr*

i can NOT remember to take pills at the same time everyday so pill not for me and i was NOT going to go get a shot.

i'm kinda regretting the mirena now, because i think that it's keeping any sexdrive that i would have had at bay (but ppd doesn't help with that either so it may not be the mirena).

ok my point?
i've had it for 8 months and haven't felt an ovulation at all. any hormonal bc can cause the non attachment kind of miscarriage because they thin the liner. if there was another non hormonal type that was as good as the mirena at preventing preg, i'd do that, but alas i'm stuck.... as far as i can tell...
