  • Mini pill problems!! Stressed!!

    Hi! So I was on the depo injection for around 5 years since having my son. OH and I want to start trying for a baby in the near future so thought I'd switch onto the pill for a bit so I'd start having periods and just to get the depo out of my system. I had to go on the mini pill as I have migraines so combined pill is a no go. I've been on the mini pill for around 5 months now. I had a period about a month into taking it which was a normal period lasting around 5-7 days. I had another period last week which lasted around 9 days. It stopped two days ago, but I've woken this morning with the heaviest period ever!!

    This is really stressing me out as I have a holiday coming up and really don't want this to last or to be unpleasantly surprised with yet more bleeding while I'm away. I didn't have a single period in the 5 yrs I was on depo so maybe I'm overreacting?

    I'm thinking I should maybe stop taking the pill until after my holiday?

    Has anyone had similar issues with the mini pill?


  • I wouldn't stop it. That's just going to make your adjustment to it more difficult. Depo is a tough one and can take sometimes even up to a year to fully stop impacting the body. I'm sure that not having a period for 5 years make these periods seem much worse and now, you're on another form of hormonal bc so your body is just saying "WTF do you want!?!?!"

    I'm one of those who seem to wind up on my period every time I plan a trip. Sometimes you just have to grin and bear it.
