Mini pill question...

Wasn't sure where to put this one really.

Has anyone else suffered from really frequent periods while taking the mini pill? I have PCOS so it could be attributed to that, but wondering if it's a common thing.

unpredictable mens bleeding is a known side effect of the mini pill anything from no periodsto heavy periods to erratic periods.
if you have PCOS, you should not get the minipill, it is known to make your symptoms worse.

Thanks twoboots! That's interesting, I didn't know that. I've gone off it and will leave it for a while methinks.
