    Default Mini Pill Period

    I have been taking the mini pill since my son was 8 weeks old. He's now nearly 1 and no longer BF.
    My period has just started. Would it be safe to assume I am not pregnant? Is the period you get on the mini pill a real one? Thanks!

    Did you only recently stop BF'ing?

    I'm on the mini pill and I do get a 'real' period, it's just a bit lighter than when you're on no hormonal contraceptive.

    I would assume you are not pregnant if it's a period, though do a test if you're doubtful.

    Hi, I stopped BF in Oct/November. This is my 2nd period since having my son in Feb and it's 26 days after the first, so it's all acting as tho it's a normal period therefore I'd hope not to be pregnant again. It would be too soon to test, but if it's still bugging me I will, it's the only way to be sure hey!
