    Default The Mini-Pill

    Anyone taking it notice any adverse side effects? (Bleeding, moody/depressed?)

    I have it ready to start taking (my baby will be 4 weeks on Friday) but I'm just wary of the side effects.

    Would love to hear any comments about your experiences!

    Haven't had any side effects. I'm on microlut. Been using it for over 6 months.

    I was very moody to the point of going to the doctor for fear of depression. Also had absolutely no libido.
    Once I came off after ten months on it I felt like a cloud of fog was lifted and I was a completely new person.
    If only I realized earlier might have enjoyed dd a lot more.

    Interesting. My libido is non-existent but I put it down to 3 children aged 5, 3 and 7 months. Maybe it is the mini pill.

    Yep microlut is the one I have been prescribed. I kind of dont want to start it if it's going to make me moody & no sex drive. I want my hormones & sex drive to come back to normal on their own before I go messing with them!! I might wait a bit before starting it.

    Hmmmm. Think ill use with caution. I am breast feeding but won't rely on that as contraception.

    I haven't had a period since I have been on microlut (19 months or so)

    I never noticed any side effects but now I read you guys saying your moody and cranky on it I'm wondering if it's the pill that's making me stressed out lol 😃
