Question about mini pill & ovulation

(5 Posts)

I've been on the mini pill for a few years now, but have just been reading up as the Dr recommended a potential change.

I have never had a period on it- does this mean I'm not ovulating on this pill? And is there any other way to know if I'm ovulating or not? hoping someone can help!

Which one is it? Some are more likely to stop ovulation than others

It's Micronor- it does say on the leaflet that it suppresses ovulation in half of takers, but I'm wondering if I'm in the half or not. I don't know if the no period is a sign of that or isn't related

I had fortnightly periods with that one! (And none with cerazette)

They did warn me of that demented but it has been fine for me. Cezerette gave my horrific greasy hair and acne- I think it's a 50/50 chance unfortunately!
