Has anyone experienced supply problems while taking the mini pill. I can only find limited information about this.

Many thanks

No idea sorry, but have you rung the BFN Drugsline?

I didn't- I started it at day 21 postnatal and never had any supply problems- bf for over a year whilst taking it.

I was a bit worried due to some info I'd read online but didn't notice any difference.
