Fairly. If you are 100% breastfeeding then the minipill is fairly effective especially in the first 6 mo after delivery. Later and once you start feeding the infant other foods it becomes less effective.
I'm just over 5 weeks pp. I started the mini pill last Sunday. I started to have light bleeding again. Is this normal? I'm breastfeeding 7-8 times.
Very. The mini pill, depo provera, nexplanon, and mirena (levonorgestrel) all usually have a period of breakthrough bleeding or spotting. However, if you've resumed sexual activity, check a pregnancy test to be certain.
I'm on the mini pill and missed a pill and now have brown spotting. Cold this be implantation? I'm breastfeeding I'm 8 month old.
Maybe missed pill. Continue using your pills and use an alternate form of birth control. Check a pregnancy test in 1-2 weeks. Follow up with with doctor. All the best.
Not implantation. The brown bleeding is from missing the pill that given day with resultant withdrawal bleeding.
Started to take the mini pill as I'm breastfeeding. Now my period has stopped. Took test... Not pregnant. Is it normal?
Yes. Because the minipill contains only progesterone, it will not regulate the cycle - but it may suppress the cycle. Many women will not have bleeding or periods at all while taking the "mini pill". Other women will have irregular, unpredictable spotting or bleeding while taking that pill.
I am on the mini pill and breastfeeding my 8month old. I missed a pill and I'm now having spotting. My period hasn't come back yet. Is this implantation?
Unlikely. The spotting is due to missing the mini-pill. Your period hasn't come back yet due to the pill (progesterone) and the fact that you are breast-feeding. I would take a home pregnancy test to be sure but it seems unlikely that you are pregnant.
