Hungry on combined pill

I have just come off the mini pill, which I was taking post partum as I was breastfeeding. I lost all my baby weight on the pill.

Have been on Levest for a week and am soooo hungry. I could eat my 10 month old between two slices of bread.

Is this normal? Will it settle? Slightly concerned I will gain the weight I worked so hard to shift.

As long as you won't eat the baby, I'd not worry yet. wink
See how it goes and if it's still the same in a month or two, maybe get another pill for you (and your baby's) sake.

Oh and i lost a ton of weight during breastfeeding which is common so maybe that's why you shifted it and not because of the pill.

Thanks KM, I worked at losing weight. No doubt BFing helped, but also counted calories and took running up again. So wasn’t that alone.

I could eat my baby, because he’s super cute... but i won’t! grin

Well done losing all the weight, that's great!

I'm on Gedarel and have loss of appetite on it but others experience the opposite. It's trial and error. Good luck.
