Mini Pill, BF and weight GAIN

I'm 5 months post-partum and nursing. I've been taking the mini-pill since about 6weeks pp.

In the past month I've started to gain weight (even though I'm now doing cardio 2-3x week). I now weigh as much as I did after coming home from hospital. Also about a month ago I quit taking my anti-depressants.

Anyone else have experience with minipill and weight gain? Idon't have any supply issues/worries at this point. Should I try to switch to something else?

TIA

No sorry, I've been on it for 5 months as well and I'm still losing weight breastfeeding. Is it possible that it has more to do with stopping the anti-depressants? How much have you gained, is it possible you're just building a little muscle from the cardio or is it, like, 10 pounds?

Weight gain is even less common with the mini pill than the regular pill...

Re: Mini Pill, BF and weight GAIN

Um, I've gained weight back after 3 of my 4 pg's. It's a bummer. This time is the worst. I was on the mini-pill for a while but that didn't seem to be the issue. I rarely lose weight while bf'ing.

Only other thought-any possibility of thyroid or diabetic issues?
