Do you ovulate while on mini-pill

I admit this is probably paranoia. I am fully breastfeeding and on the mini-pill but I believe I had ovulation spotting and EWCM. I guess I wasn't expecting it while on the pill. My last baby was conceived while on the regular pill with the same symptoms Do I need to prepare myself?

Uh- well theoretically if you're taking the pill at exactly the same time each day you *shouldn't*. As far as I'm aware the mini-pill is progesterone taken throughout your 'cycle', which inhibits ovulation. But of course there are always failures for all methods of contraception. Good luck!

Re: Do you ovulate while on mini-pill

it depends on which brand you are on. Some stop ovulation more than others, but none stop it in all women. You can still ovulate, but still have the pill be effective. The mini-pill works by thinning the lining of the uterus to prevent implantation and by making the mucous around the cervix much thicker to prevent sperm from getting through. The mini-pill has to be taken at the same time every day for it to be effective though and has a higher failure rate than other combined hormone pills because of this.

I'm taking Micronor I always take it at the same time, I have a cell phone alarm reminder and I feel like some sort of trained seal as I here the alarm and take it.
