    Default Thinking about starting the Pill? Advice?

    I've stopped breastfeeding and I've got mini pill.

    But my OB says, although the mini pill is good at preventing a pregnancy, its not the 'best' thing to be on.

    So, should I go on the Pill or stay on the mini pill?



    What are your experiences?

    Have you been ok on hormonal contraception before? If so then the pill is easier to use than the mini pill (in that you don't have to take it at the same time each day). You could also look at getting a coil or implant if you would like longer term protection from pregnancy. I have a mirena coil which has a hormonal element which suits me fine, but I know others who are very sensitive to hormones find it to be very unpleasant.
