Re: Switching from combination pill to mini pill
I took the mini pill and it had no effect on my periods. I really wanted them to stop but no such luck. I got tired of taking it so I quit. But I didn't notice any of the weird side effects that women have complained about while taking it. I only quit because I got tired of having a period so I got the Mirena instead, which has the same hormones as the mini pill. Unfortunately that fell out but it was SO great to not have a period for a while! I don't know why so many women are so against that. Especially given the fact that not having a period while on the pill is totally normal and shouldn't be automatic taken as a sign of pregnancy. Only for women not on the pill does a missed period possibly mean pregnancy but not always and not for sure.
