    Default A favor please from those on the mini pill?

    Hi I'm trying to find a lactose free mini pill and I'm wondering if anyone who is taking one could possibly please check the ingredients and tell me if they contain lactose or not? I've left a message with a pharmacist but I'm yet to hear back and my doctors appointment is tomorrow.

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks for your replies the pharmacist has just called me back to say they all contain lactose which leaves me with the mirena, depo injection or implanon I gained 30kg on the implanon and the pharmacist has advised I probably would have issues with the depo as well. I don't want to use the mirena as I'm not comfortable having something inside me like that which just leaves barrier methods (condoms) and they cause me pain when we DTD

    Can I just say I have had both Implanon and Depo, and while implanon I had a few side effects (weight gain being one), the depo I had absolutely nothing. If anything it helped. Just a different perspective for you

    You could give mirena a go and if you don't like it, get it removed? I have similar concerns with something being inserted, but I am willing to give it a go when I stop breastfeeding.

    The pill is so tiny, any chance the amount of lactose wouldn't hurt you? (assuming lactose intolerance, don't know what the actual problem is...)

    I've been on the pill before, I know it makes no sense but any pill with lactose in it gives me gastro intestinal side effects (TMI but I vomit and get diarrhea) yet I can consume dairy. I vomit after taking maxalon the other week I took a worming tablet (thanks to DS1) and I didn't check the ingredients I spent the rest of the day with really bad stomach cramps and the above

    Thanks everyone I'm really just not comfortable having things inside me, I don't even like having a pap smear or vaginal exam done the thought of something being inside me that doesn't belong there makes me feel sick. We don't want to be sterilized as we think it may be possible that we will want another child in about 5 years time, maybe.
