Anybody used/using the "mini" pill/progestin-only pill while breastfeeding? My husband and I are at our two-and-done stage of growing our family, and while we're ultimately going the vasectomy route, that's not scheduled yet. In the interim, I figured I'd go back to pills, as they are the form of contraception I've had the best results with.
However, I've only ever been on combination pills. My OBGYN's office only prescribes progestin-only pills to nursing mothers, even though I was reading research that suggests that combination pills may not suppress lactation as has been the generally accepted understanding.
I didn't do any birth control after I had my older child, because we knew we wanted to get pregnant again as soon as possible (I was creeping toward forty). I didn't get periods again until my son was eight months old and eating a lot of table food/nursing less, and then it took only two cycles to get pregnant, so I have no previous experience with birth control while nursing. Just kind of looking for others' experience with this form of BC while nursing...side effects, etc.
