I'm so annoyed. I've been on the minipill since Tyler was born, because I was breastfeeding. He weaned about a month ago, and I just continued to use the minipill because I have a pap appointment on the 25th and thought I could just wait and get a new type of bc then. But ever since I weaned I've been bleeding practically nonstop! I figured out it was breakthrough bleeding from the hormone in the minipill not being strong enough now that I'm not b/fing, so I stopped taking it in hopes that I'd stop bleeding (it slowed down almost immediately and now I'm just spotting).
I called my dr office to see if they could call me in a bc prescription for the regular pill just to hold me over until my appointment (my old dr did this for me), and they were just like, Nope, the pharmacy can fax us and we'll tell them to give you another refill. I was like, um, that won't help me because I have an rx for the minipill and that's why I'm having problems etc. They were just like no, and they weren't nice about it. Ugh. So I guess we just have to use condoms until my appointment.
Anyway, I'm debating what type of bc to start using now that I have a choice of using any type I want. I'm debating between Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo and the patch. Anyone have any other bc suggestions or experience with either or those types of bc?
