birth control after delivery

Hey everyone! I was wondering if anyone could help me out..i just had a c-section 2 1/2 weeks ago and i started the birth control pill today.. im still bleeding from the c-section but my doc. said something about the pill is going to make it stop..i dont know if thats true and how that would work since im not bleeding from a period... i have no idea what to expect while taking this, ive never been on birth control and i dont know what kinda changes to expect..if anyone could help me, id greatly appreciate it!! Thanks a bunch!

Re: birth control after delivery

I had to be put on birth control 4 weeks after my c-section, because I was still bleeding vaginally. They did an ultrasound, and determined that I had SEVEN MORE WEEKS of bleeding left before my "period" would end. I was put on the pill, and it came to a hault just 2 days afterwards.

If you've never been on the pill, I would recommend Yasmin28. Much less estrogen levels than OrthoTriCyclen, or Trivora...It worked well for me.
